NUTCRACKING CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER FOR THE VEGGIE TRUCK MARKET: FRI, DEC 13
Got pecans? We’d sure appreciate them! Our wonderful high school interns (past and present) will crack and shell pecans all night on Dec 13 as a fundraiser for the Veggie Truck Market’s SNAP doubling program. We’re calling it “Kim’s Nutcracking Christmas Party,” and yes, there will be a little fun involved, too. Please consider bringing us a bag of fresh, uncracked pecans to the Tuesday market this week or next in support of this effort!
