Ashley Pays It Forward With Her Community Market Basket

Meet Ashley

Ashley enjoys fresh local produce weekly through the No More Empty Pots Community Market Basket Program. She found herself with an extra box last week because she had missed a delivery. Instead of taking it home for herself, she insisted that her box be paid forward to an individual or family who could not afford fresh produce. “I’ve been in situations where I couldn’t get food, especially not fruits and vegetables”, said Ashley. Because of her, one family is now able to enjoy healthy fruits and vegetables!
