A partnership with Community Food Initiatives, Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market and Rural Action

Community Food Initiatives (CFI) is a nonprofit based in Athens County whose mission is to foster communities where everyone has equitable access to healthy local food. One of their many programs is the Donation Station, a local food solution that reduces food insecurity and supports the local food economy. From a donation of one dollar, Donation Station volunteers are able to purchase one pound of food from local farmers for distribution to area food pantries.

CFI is collaborating with the Rural Action Northern Programs office in Tuscarawas County to start a Donation Station at the Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market (TVFM). TVFM is located at the Tuscarawas Valley Fair Grounds and operates every Wednesday from 3-7 p.m. from June 1 until Oct. 12. The Donation Station at Tuscarawas will share the harvest and help with food access in Tuscarawas County.
