Go, Anna Chan! She’s started her own blog, called The Lemon Lady, about her one-woman fruit-collection and produce growing efforts, all designed to get fresh fruit and veggies into the hands of local needy and hungry families.
She’s one of our community’s local heroes. She’s a stay-at-home mom from Clayton who has found a simple but ingenius way to get produce into the hands of those in need.
I’ve profiled her before, and so have blogging friends, the Mayor of Claycord, Mister Writer, for her work on behalf of Katie Grace Groebner, a young local girl who suffers from a rare disorder and needs a heart-and-lung transplant. She has also been profiled in a blog on Diablo magazine’s website.
Here’s more of what Anna says about her campaign on her website:
One-woman Campaign Against Hunger. 4,300 pounds of local fruit harvested in two months! Meeting true angels along the way. Lemons, oranges, grapefruit, apricots, plums, peaches, tomato, bean or zucchini, one by one, all for the greater good of humanity. Hoping to inspire others about summer vegetable donations to local food pantries: the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, the Salvation Army at the Concord Community Church, the Monument Crisis Center, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano’s blog.
Be warned, Anna, with this blog. It could become an addiction. We moms, or so they say, and as I’ve written before, can become prey to that!
Meanwhile, continued good luck with all your great work!
