LFF Volunteers

The Local Food Fair, like all of Farmshed programs, relies on the help of volunteers to bring fun and success to the event. In 2018 we had over 100 volunteers spend approximately 600 hours helping make the Local Food Fair a success. Without your support the Fair would not be what it is today. Thank you.
