A few weeks ago Kim wrote a very informative note about the free lunches Rooster Head Plantation is serving to the children and adults in our community in need of a meal. The note encouraged donations from members of Moving to Conservers.

I was curious about what the response was to this donations request so I contacted Jacqui at the Farm. Well, the response was disappointing so let’s see if we can do better!

The Farm started the meals on March 18th and has served every Wednesday-Saturday except for one Wednesday when the farm flooded. Jacqui and her volunteers serve anywhere from 48-125 lunches a week. Weather seems to dictate. The cost of preparing these free bag lunches averages $1 a day.

It is very easy to donate:

1. One can stop by the Farm and give cash or a check. Plus while there, do some shopping of local and regional foods, fruits and vegetables.

2. I live far from the farm so I send a check to this address: Rooster Head Plantation, 184 Evergreen St Brevard 28712

3. One can also send donations via the CashApp at her handle $JacquelineEdens or through PayPal at [email protected]

Just think: one dollar gives a hungry person something to eat. So please open your hearts … and wallets … and donate what you can in order to support the fine folks at Rooster Head so they can continue to be there for our community in need.
