ALFN Local Food Club:  Spread The Word!


Good afternoon! We’d like to share some news about the Arkansas Local Food Network and our Little Rock Local Food Club.

• ALFN’s goal for the Food Club in 2013 is to get the word out to your friends and neighbors about how easy, quick, and efficient it is to Eat Local with our market. We printed 2,000 brochures with FAQs and information about the Food Club and handed out hundreds at our booth at the recent Arkansas Flower & Garden Show. Our FRESH directory that we printed last fall has proven exceedingly popular. To date we’ve handed out over 4,500 copies. If you’ve got a suggestion for a business or other location that would like some Food Club brochures or Fresh directories, please let us know! And, as always, thanks for helping us spread the word about Food Club.

Rebecca Wild has rejoined us in a new role specifically to manage the day to day details of Food Club. This will allow Food Club to get all the special attention it needs to continue its amazing growth this year. Please help me to give a warm welcome to Rebecca!

• We’ve setup a new email for Food Club:littlerockfoodclub@gmail.com. Please use this for any Food Club related questions or issues. We will still use arlocalfoodnetwork@gmail.com to reach our Director Sam Hedges and ALFN, including our other programs and projects.

My mantra for 2013 is ‘ALFN Spread The Word!’ and I hope you join me in this goal. There are a lot of folks in the Central Arkansas area that have yet to learn about how awesome ALFN is. Together we can change that.

Dwayne McFarlan, ALFN Board Chair
