LOAF Co. Launches a Fundraiser to Establish Mobile Hydroponic Fresh Produce Gardens in Atlanta
Local Atlanta Farm Company (“LOAF Co.”), an Atlanta-based company, launched their first crowd-sourcing fundraiser to kick-off their grass roots campaign to bring their hydroponic mobile farms to life in their hometown.
Online PR News – 19-September-2012 – Atlanta, GA – Local Atlanta Farm Company (“LOAF Co.”), an Atlanta-based company, launched their first crowd-sourcing fundraiser to kick-off their grass roots campaign to bring their hydroponic mobile farms to life in their hometown.
LOAF Co. is the brainchild of husband and wife team Niko and Kathlika Fontes. Between the two of them, they have years of consumer goods, retail management, and non-profit experience and a shared love of the city they have called home for nearly 20 years.
Co-Founder Kathlika Fontes says that hearing about residents in Atlanta who live in food deserts moved her to action: “The resources of our city – the space to grow, the economics to make it happen, and that love of neighbor that’s so common down here in the South – are enough to address and fix the crisis of food scarcity.”
Like other metropolitan cities in the US, Atlanta has incongruent social and economic communities throughout the city. Purchasing fresh vegetables for dinner during the week can mean walking miles or taking a lengthy bus ride just to get to a well-stocked grocery store. Not to mention the cost of better quality, clean raw food.
“Every time a customer selects our lettuce or our peppers from a grocery store shelf or orders a fresh spring salad from a restaurant that buys our produce, they make a micro-donation to help their neighbors in need, says co-Founder Niko Fontes.
LoAF Co. needs your help. Please support their efforts to make a change in the way people think about food. You can be part of this new paradigm, where you don’t have to be wealthy to have affordable access to the very best foods.
Please stop by, and be a part of history: http://www.indiegogo.com/LoafCo
