Maintaining rural food banks in a time of fast-rising rental costs

Sprague River Bridge Connection is a small food pantry and clothing closet that serves Klamath County's Sprague River Valley. The building they operate out of is now for sale and the all-volunteer staff don't yet have an affordable alternative.

To avoid shutting down and depriving up to 200 families of monthly access to food, the Sprague River Bridge Connection volunteers are trying to raise money to purchase the building and to draw attention to the importance of local food banks in depressed regions.

SRBC President Trish Herndon and Secretary/Treasurer Vera Carson join the JX.
