Cave Junction: Harvest Kitchen Food Drive

HARVEST KITCHEN FOOD DRIVE: Recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey showed poverty breakdowns for 14,214 places in the U.S with populations of 1,000 or more; the ACS chart revealed that our town, Cave Junction, with a poverty rate of 30.82 percent, ranked No. 13,669 of the 14,214 studied nationwide. Yes, times are tough. Even for those of us fortunate to have work. But, these are even tougher times for the homeless and our increasing number of under-or-unemployed families with children in the area. If you would, please consider supporting the upcoming HK food drive with your donation(s). Of special need, are local folks willing to place our food collection baskets at their place of business. Thanks-J
