Campaign Goal: $5,000
Dollars Raised: $4,628
Your donation will provide high quality fresh produce to those in need. The money raised will be spent at the Chesterhill Produce Auction throughout the 2022 growing season and produce will be distributed weekly through Community Food Initiatives’ Veggie Van in the communities of Glouster and Coolville.

Double Your Impact
Modern Woodmen of America will match the first $2,500 in donations we receive. That means we need only $2,500 in donations to get the match and make our $5,000 goal!
(Modern Woodmen is the nation’s third-largest fraternal benefit society in terms of assets. Fraternalism is a unique combination of business and giving back to those who are served – a continuous cycle of positive impact.)
Why This Matters
Rural residents in our region face limited access to healthy food. By donating to the Local Food for All Campaign you are:
- Providing access to local produce for those facing barriers
- Supporting local farmers
- Standing up for food justice in Southeast Ohio
- Strengthening partnerships between Rural Action, the Chesterhill Produce Auction, and Community Food Initiatives, who work collaboratively to accelerate the distribution of local foods into Appalachian communities
If we meet the goal, we will be able to purchase and deliver over 2,000 pounds – 360 half-pecks – of fresh, local produce to rural residents in need.
