Posting to Facebook just hours apart, two of our favorite local nonprofits shared some BIG impact numbers with the community. Tri Cycle Farms gave us an update on their 2017 Food Recovery Program and Ozark Off-Road Cyclists reported out on their 2017 trail stewardship efforts. Check out the numbers below!
Tri Cycle Farms Food Recovery
Whole Foods donated 107,659 pounds of food and commodities to the program. 99,234 pounds of this went to food recipients. 24,043 pounds went to compost.
Through the program, 925 volunteer opportunities were created and 1,371 volunteer hours contributed.
