As we continue our autumn-winter marathon of packing, shipping, sorting and moving animals and meat, we wanted to take a few minutes to express our gratitude for the support throughout the year and for sharing our vision of a food secure community, of the possibilities of regenerative agriculture, and of the importance of ethical animal husbandry and land stewardship.
We also want to thank you for your generosity in donating to our Affordability Fund.
Our total Affordability Fund for 2018 was $3,585.40 (which includes $3,071.68 in donations and $513.72 in funds left over from 2017). These funds allowed us to sell our meat at-cost to 6 households (representing $756.20 in Affordability Fund dollars), and to donate $3,279 worth of meat to food banks, for a grand total of $4,035.20 worth of meat donated by Grazing Days in 2018.
Since opening up Affordability Fund Donations to amounts set by customers (instead of a set 0,10$/lb with opt in/out option), we've seen a dramatic increase in amounts donated. We are greatly touched by this. Please help us reach out to people who could benefit from the Affordability Fund. You can find more information about the Fund right here.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
All the best,
Josée Madéia and Paul Slomp.
