Think Local Thank Local Wrap Party
Cambridge Local First raised $10,800 for Food For Free. David Leslie attended the wrap party at Christopher's Restaurant in Porter Square. “This is an important project of Cambridge Local First and our business members to be able to give back to the community,” says Rachael Solem, Chair of the Think Local Thank Local Committee. “This was the best year for this four year old project.” “The City of Cambridge in partnership with Cambridge Local First, created a resolution in August of 2010 to designate the City as the Nation’s first ‘Local Economy Community.’ Through that resolution, more focus has been placed on supporting local nonprofits to keep money circulating in the community,” says Janneke House, Executive Director of Cambridge Local First.
