Look at what $10 a week can do..........
Cities and Counties of the Central Shenandoah Valley Region: $59,848,360!
Thats right. Almost $60 million annually!
Broken down into our areas:

These are community food dollars generated and reinvested in Shenandoah Valley area agriculture and local independent businesses from a small conscious decision to buy local. JUST $10 A WEEK! Think about it.
