Annual Farm Fresh 5K: Cancelled
987 N Waggoner Rd
Update regarding our 14th Annual Farm Fresh 5K:
Shepherd’s Corner’s Farm Fresh 5K is the main source of revenue for our food pantry gardens. For thirteen years this race has been a fun community driven event for all ages of runners and walkers. This year the onslaught of COVID-19 has impacted so many and caused life changes for all of us. The health of all of our friends & supporters is very important to us. For this reason, Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center has decided to cancel our June 13th Farm Fresh 5K. We will miss the excitement and laughter the racers and walkers bring to Shepherd’s Corner.
The impact of COVID-19 will be felt for quite this time. We know that the need for our naturally-grown vegetables will be even greater this season. Food insecurity in Central Ohio will continue to rise. Now, more than ever, our food pantry garden is extremely important.
It is the mission of Shepherd’s Corner and of the Dominican Sisters of Peace to care for those who are in need. It would be a blessing to have you join us in our mission. If you are able, consider making a donation to support our efforts to get fresh produce into the hands of those in need. We are grateful for support as we strive to serve our community in this turbulent time.
