More than 500 volunteers at JK Community Farm in Purcellville helped plant 50,000 seedlings over the weekend which will provide about 100,000 meals to local people in need of assistance, according to the farm’s Executive Director Samantha Kuhn.

“The food pantries let us know what types of produce they use the most,” Kuhn said. “We expect to donate 245,000 pounds of food this year. At the end of this season, we will reach one million pounds since we started.”
