Stacey's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped keep fresh produce flowing to a local food desert!
I grew up in the community I serve. It's a small community at the foothills of the Angeles Crest National Forest. As a child, my mother and grandmother taught me the importance of eating and growing my own food; and, no matter where I've lived, gardening and healthy eating have been a priority, both for myself and for my community. Now, I have the opportunity to give back to the community that raised me. Unfortunately, there are fewer local sources of fresh produce here than there were when I was a child. I can directly address this through the Altadena Farmers' Market, continuing to prioritize wellness by making fresh, local produce accessible and affordable.
