Still haven’t found an exact angle for my enterprise story but believe I will after I speak with Karen Edmonds who is the program director for Food for Lane County. I have also found out a lot about the various programs they have such as the Family Dinner Prgoram and the Garden Program.
I also did not know that Food for Lane County helps provide lunches for students of all ages who cannot afford them on their own. I have also run into a few people who have personally been helped by FOOD For Lane County and cannot stop telling me how amazing they are. In fact, the woman I interviewed for my profile piece Rachel Novak, recieved food from FOOD for Lane County while she was in a shelter here in Eugene. I guess that helps me secure one inteview and now I just have about 3 more to complete before the draft is due Monday.
Good luck everyone!
