Staff Reports

SAFFORD – The United Way of Graham and Greenlee Counties recently awarded Our Neighbors Farm & Pantry a $69,000 grant to assist with funding through its transitions in staff and improvements to the pantry and garden. 

Our Neighbors Farm & Pantry utilizes sustainable agriculture methods, including drip tape irrigation, solar panels, and water harvesting. It was originally founded in 2004 as a nonprofit food pantry but soon began its garden with donated land. 

The Farm harvests fresh produce and distributes it to those in need. The pantry is here to assist those with food security and appreciates donations from the public and corporate partners.
