We are collecting donated food each week at the markets through our Gleaning Program for our good friends at the Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services. We will be collecting food products that vendors may end up discarding at the end of each market day. In addition, customers will have the opportunity to purchase products, or bring canned or dried food products, for the GFCFS's Food Pantry for donation to needy families and/or bring items in need. How about purchasing an extra dozen eggs for our hungry neighbors for donation? We will be collecting these items weekly at the ChiknEGG booth. And don't forget, we accept SNAP (formerly know as food stamps)! Tell your friends!
