Note: I do affiliate with some, though not all, resources listed on this page. You can choose to purchase directly through their company websites rather than through this website - the cost to you is the same either way. However, if you choose to enter their sites from this website first - 10% of the proceeds from you're purchases will also be donated to the some of my favorite non-profit organizations including Heifer Intn'l and Community Food Connections So your dollars can work even better at no extra cost to you. Thanks for your continued support and for helping to make this a vital community resource!
