Thank you to everyone who supported the soup lunch, especially to Kathleen Till and Ann Jacobs who made the delicious soup. Your donations will help farmers like Edelmira learn new farming techniques so that they can grown enough to feed their families.


Thank You So Much for your support of Harvest fast day
