Frank You

Fresh Exchange provides access to fresh, local foods so all Portlanders can enjoy them. By matching up $5 in SNAP funds (formerly food stamps), Fresh Exchange helps extend family food budgets in hard times. And if that weren’t enough, the dollars raised and spent by Fresh Exchange stay in agricultural communities, in turn strengthening PFM’s growers, ranchers and farmers.

What can you do to support this miracle initiative? You can go to Buckman Market (SE 20th & Salmon) Thursday, August 11th and eat dinner. The last fund raiser was a burger, so this time, we are saying Franks-a-lot, with a Sausage cook-off fundraiser. You to can give Franks by watching and maybe even sharing the video below.

100% of funds go directly to Fresh Exchange thanks to generous donations from:Highland Oak (beef dogs), Tails & Trotters (pork sausages), Reister Farms (lamb sausages), Gathering Together Farms (veggie toppings), New Seasons Market (buns), Alberta Cooperative Grocery (condiments) and Tim’s Cascade Snacks (chips!)
