Our friends in Ajo are in need of support!! Your donation will directly purchase fresh foods for someone in need. We'll be sending local foods from Phoenix directly to Ajo to help feed our rural communities.
Buy a box for someone in need: Recipients receive a free box containing local produce and fruit with some canned and dried goods, available to anyone. Provided Ajo Center for Sustainable Agriculture in partnership with Desert Senita Community Health Center, Ajo Unified School District, Ajo Community Market, Ajo Food Pantry. Thank you to Pima County for funding this program.
In their first weeks they assembled and distributed 400 boxes with local organic produce, dried and canned goods, each at about 9 lbs, which means they gave away 3,600 lbs of food!! Yet they grossly underestimated the need and ran out of boxes at all locations on both days just about immediately. Their small team has been doing everything from picking up product at the farms, to bagging and distributing at four sites plus deliveries.
