What fruits and vegetables are in season? How should you prepare them? RAFFL’s Everyday Chef blog offers easy recipes and cooking tips for making use of the season’s best and freshest food.
RAFFL works with farmers, gardeners, food shelves and service organizations, Green Mountain College, and volunteers to get fresh, local food to those who need it. Since 2009, RAFFL has donated thousands of pounds of fresh food.
