BRING YOUR OWN BAG OR BASKET

Buy a PFM bag at the Information Booth, or recycle your plastic bags, asking vendors to use them instead of theirs.

GO WITHOUT A LIST

The point of going to a farmers market is to get the freshest produce possible. Plan on buying whatever is in season and looks best, and plan your meals around your purchase. Take time to taste and compare the offerings of different vendors.

TRY NEW FOODS

Buy something you’ve never had before. Ask the farmer their favorite way of preparing it.

TAKE TIME TO CHAT WITH THE FARMERS

Get to know your food by getting to know who grows it. This is part of the fun of shopping at a farmers market, and will make you a wiser shopper.

GO STRAIGHT HOME

Fresh produce in a hot car will wilt, so take it home before running other errands. Or, bring an ice chest to keep the produce cool.

COTTONWOOD, AZ — 10/15/2021 — Home for New Beginnings announces the first ever

Why do we need to spread awareness of homeless youth?
“Many wonder who will be welcomed into Home for New Beginnings once the doors are
officially opened”stated Pamela Barton, Executive Director, and continued, “This home is for
youth who haven’t found the care needed or a foster home available to them in Verde Valley.
While we support foster youth and homeless youth as much as possible, there are undoubtedly
links that need to be addressed to those who were raised and transitioned from bed to bed in a
stranger’s home to finally aging out of the system. We want to be the final destination for these
children in a familiar neighborhood close to living relatives and schools they have grown-up in.
We have the ability to provide this to them, but need the community’s help in making it come
alive.”
Foster Focus Magazine wrote of the statistical links The National Alliance to End Homelessness
found between foster care and homelessness. “More recent statistics include the following:
• Approximately 400,000 youth are currently in foster care in the United States. Approximately
20,000 of those youth age-out each year without positive familial supports or any family
connection at all.
• Within 18 months of emancipation 40-50% of foster youth become homeless.
• Nationally, 50% of the homeless population spent time in foster care.
4
• A history of foster care correlates with becoming homeless at an earlier age and remaining
homeless for a longer period of time.
• 65% of youth leaving foster care need immediate housing upon discharge.
• The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty estimates that 5,000 unaccompanied
youth die each year as a result of assault, illness, or suicide.
