The Voluntary Action Center Community Kitchen has evolved from serving meals from food boxes and crockpots to utilizing a fully functioning commercial kitchen. The Community Kitchen Exists due to the generosity of caring individuals and businesses in our community. Each month more than 1,000 meals are served which shares not only nutritional support but HOPE for the future. The Kitchen is currently provid-ing hot meals on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week from 11a.m.- 1 p.m. There are many oppor-tunities to support the Community Kitchen. We accept sponsorships for meals, donations of food and paper products, as well as volunteers. Please contact Lisa Smith at 706-383-6486 to start making a difference.
The Farm Service Agency has been approved to begin taking applications, under the Emer-gency Conservation Program, from producers in Bartow and Gordon Counties that suffered qualifying losses in the January 30 tornado that hit the Counties. We have two practices available to provide assistance Debris Removal and Restoring Permanent Fencing. The debris must be scattered across cropland and/or pasture and hay land and consist of trees and construction debris. If you had damaged or destroyed permanent fencing we can assist with cost shares to restore this fencing. Due to this program not being considered an entitlement program you must have at least $2,000 in qualifying damage to be eligible. Signup will begin on February 18 and will end on Friday, March 15. For further information interested pro-ducers can come by our office located at 717 South Wall St. in Calhoun or call us at 706-629-2582.
