On Tuesday, September 22nd, over 30 volunteers met at the Woodcrest Community and processed over 4,000 pounds of sweet corn! The corn was donated by RVGA Farmers – Gill’s Farm, Robert O. Davenport and Sons, Saunderskill Farms and Davenport Farms. The event was a huge success and the processing of the corn was completed in just 6 hours with the generous assistance of the folks at Woodcrest. A huge thanks to Red, Julian, Vera, Darlene and Travis, and all of the volunteers who came out to help. We produced over 750 2-pound bags of sweet corn that were frozen and will be distributed over the winter months by FAMILY volunteers to pantries and soup kitchens in the region.
