  1. McDonald spoke passionately today about the 187,000 clients they served in 2015, from 5 counties, utilizing lots of community partners and networking. He is committed to hunger relief, helping people to learn to grow food, provide economic opportunities through food. “Access & equity” to live the American Dream is his goal, plus decrease the # of recipients of their CFB business (currently 16% of the total pop.) Questions were about food stamps, food surplus (federal), UA Food Pantry, SNAP food stamp program, which grocery stores donate food, gardening education programs, community/school gardens (200), charitable contribution tax credit increase, would Jim Click get food if he showed up & asked for it, hydroponics in the future, teaching students in more affluent schools to grow food, culinary full meal preparation, CFB community & demo gardens, pet food bank?, catering program, Casa Maria Food Pantry, David Monthan volunteers/clients, website to volunteer, French intensive gardens, aquaponics, variety of food donations (spices), access for all who are hungry.
