On Tuesday, March 4, Eric Frydenlund, chair of the Crawford County Community Fund, met with members of the Roy and Jerry George family to receive a $500 grant from the George Family Charitable Foundation in support of the 2014 Crawford Markets Care program.
The George Family Charitable Foundation was formed in 1996 and has granted more than $350,000 to a variety of organizations and initiatives in the Crawford County area.
“We are happy to assist programs such as the Crawford Markets Care program to better the long-term quality of life in Crawford County,” said Roy George (son of Roy and Jerry). “Not only is this program offering healthy produce to our community but it is supporting our local farmers.”
The Crawford County Community Fund initiated the Crawford Markets Care program in 2009. The program is designed to assist those community residents who are clients of Crawford County food pantries in their purchase of fresh produce at Crawford County farmers markets. Over the past five years, there have been more than 2,200 $5-coupons redeemed, translating to over $11,000 worth of fresh produce purchased from local vendors.
