Growing The Food Project

Ashland Food Project
/

People donate a mountain of money and food during the holiday season.  But people need food all year long. 

The Ashland Food Project set out to address the need several years ago, with regular, predictable food pickups. 

Now the model is in place in several Rogue Valley cities, and being copied elsewhere. 

Founder John Javna visits the studio to talk about the trajectory of the various food projects.
