Three cheers for Chef Jose Andres and DC Central Kitchen for their work to ensure that furloughed federal workers have access to healthy food during this tough time. The program will remain open through next week as payroll is sorted out. Kudos to MC farmers and hunters who are stepping up to help supply the effort!
One Acre Farm, Nick's Organic Farm, Metro Microgreens, BCC Izaak Walton League... list is growing 😉
MCA President Gene Kingsbury writes,
"We are pleased that we can call upon the bounties of the Ag Reserve and the generosity of its farmers to assist local Federal workers through hardships associated with the recent furloughs."
