VFC CCF Grant Recipients

We are pleased to announce the recipients of our first-ever VFC Cooperative Community Fund (CCF) Grant!* Both of the organizations have projects that work with local food, the local food economy, and students. The Ferryville Farmers Market project focuses on mentoring students on the early stages of food production by way of planting, growing and selling food.
