One of the organizers Marie-Claire “MC” Camp tells GRBJ,
“We have so many generous people and so many resources here in West Michigan. I know that strong communities support each other and that we need one another... We’re all so isolated right now, it’s been a hard year, and many of us are struggling. I have an auto-immune disease, and it’s been really scary for me having a compromised immune system during a pandemic. I’m excited to see healthy folks come out to the market, wearing their masks and social distancing to support one another. We have a long road to go still, but if we all work together, we can make it.”
