Being stage 3 cancer patient, having a plant-based diet is essential for me. The CFPA makes it possible for me to have quality, delicious, real food (no chemicals) year-round. I've learned how to can, made new friends and able to help others. This food also serves as my emergency food preparedness. Hal Meng is a great teacher who is dedicated to helping the community to help themselves. The classes are a blessing to me and many others. We also have the opportunity to give back by canning food for the food bank.
