Foodshed Alliance will provide fresh, local farmer’s market ingredients while Ark Valley Helping Hands distributes to at-risk elders who have more challenges leaving home to acquire meals.

Organizers say this collaboration highlights both the organization’s strongest assets and is in direct response to Chaffee County Community Foundation’s Food Access Cohort Program.
