What Is The Ashland Food Project?

About a year ago, a group of Ashlanders began working on a project designed to provide a regular supply of food to the Ashland Emergency Food Bank (AEFB). “We knew that a lot of our neighbors wanted to donate food, but for one reason or another, never got around to it,” explains the group’s co-founder, Paul Giancarlo. “So we decided to put together a door-to-door food collection system to make it easy for them.” They called it the Ashland Food Project. (AFP).
