Let’s see if we understand the Farmer Farm dilemma; the organization that has helped to feed people over 2 million times during the pandemic (“County wants nonprofit food distributor to find new home,” The Herald March 8).
In this time of need of homelessness, loss of jobs leading to loss of homes, people going hungry, the county is worried about Farmer Frog’s operation encroaching on land other than what they leased.
Certainly the county has educated themselves on how hard this organization has worked to procure this food that reaches so many in our community. The truckloads of food didn’t just happen overnight. It came about from hours and hours of work on Farmer Frog’s dedication to helping people. The food comes from all over our state and (I believe) also outside of our state.
To offer them space at the fair grounds? Come on. That too would most likely be temporary when a paying event comes along.
Work with them and find a more desirable space or the county can be responsible for even more hunger in our community.
