Radio show honors The Food Project

The Food Project, started in Ashland and now thriving in Medford, Talent and a number of other cities, will be presented with the E-Chievement Award on Friday at the Britt Festival during a live taping of the popular, nationally-syndicated public radio show eTown.

Since 1991, eTown has presented hundreds of E-Chievement Awards to nonprofits that are making a positive difference. With the award comes heightened public awareness that brings a boost in volunteerism and funding, the show's website reports..

Chosen from among thousands of nominations, The Food Project has collected over 300,000 pounds of food since its origins in 2009, promoters said. The food supplies dozens of food banks around the valley. Find out more at
