Interfaith Food Ministry has been providing food to families in need for 29 years in Nevada County. Last year they served over 8,000 clients and over 2,300 of those were children. Interfaith food Ministry is holding a fundraising drive in the Month of February to help raise funds so they can go solar.

I-F-M Executive Director, Sue VanSon says the decision to go solar is to run the refrigeration and walk in freezer units they need to keep food from spoiling. She says the electricity bill is currently costing them about $700 a month.

Interfaith Food Ministry is working with DC Solar-Electric to install the solar panels with an anticipated annual cost savings of $8,000 that can be used to purchase additional nutritional foods. VanSon says they need to raise $35,000  in donations to complete the solar install. She says a lot of recognition rewards are posted on their website to individuals donating at various levels, and the first two donors of $5,000 or more will receive a premium side of beef.
