If Just Food can raise $30,000 by September 30th, they will receive an additional 30,000 from two challenge grants, $25,000 from an anonymous community member and $5,000 from Peoples Bank. The matching grants are meant to get the local organization out of the hole created by its former director, Jeremy Farmer, and continue its mission to help those in need in Douglas County.
The Just Food Board Members previously contributed a collective $10,450, and the Crowdrise fundraiser has collected a total of $8,515. We are calling on community support to help to help us take advantage of the entirety of the $30,000 in matching grants.
In August 2015 alone, Just Food served 3,290 unique individuals. On average, Just Food has 120-200 clients walk through our doors each day. We need to make sure our doors stay open so these families can access one of the most basic needs, food.
