Happy Friday! While Durham & the Triangle avoided most of Flo's impact, there's immense flooding in ENC, on top of horrible flooding just two years ago from Matthew. The CAFO-related environment devastation is shaping up as maybe the worst ever. If you are looking for a way to help out flooding victims, this is one good resource. On a happy note, congrats to the 44 USDA Local Food Promotion Program and the CDFI Fund Healthy Food Financing Initiative grantees!
