Offering: Evan Wysor – Our May Share the Plate is The Sharing Locker’s Farmer’s Market. For four years The Sharing locker has partnered with West Bay Community Action, URI’s S.N.A.P. /food assistance outreach, and West Bay Farm. Together, they provided farm-fresh produce between July and October to our Sharing Locker Clients, many of whom may lack access to fresh, healthy produce. Due to the pandemic, the $15 vouchers were curtailed. We are looking to close the gap to continue the Farmer’s Market effort in this upcoming season. To donate www.westminsteruu.org/donate
