The Big Day of Giving
For the first time, Winters Farm to School will participate in the Big Day of Giving (BDOG). BDOG, a 24 hour online fundraising event, will be held on May 4th. Fundraising to feed local kids local foods, Winters Farm to School hopes to raise $10,000. Winters Farm to School is an all volunteer organization, so all of the monies raised from BDOG will directly benefit our community’s children. First, funds will be used to purchase fresh fruits, nuts and produce for our school district’s school meal programs; second, seeds, trees and benches will be purchased for the gardens at Waggoner and Rominger Schools; and third, funds will help support the Kids Farmers Market which serves over 170 students at Waggoner School every week.
