Jo Daviess Local Foods (JDLF) is an online farmers’ market that started in 2018 with just seven producers.  Since then, they have grown to include nearly forty producers, depending on the time of year.  JDLF helps these producers work together to meet the growing demand for local food.

JDLF recently received a grant through IL-EATS that enabled them to expand the foods they provide to include additional pantries in different counties.  We are delighted to announce, JDLF has generously selected our Mest Manor Food Pantry here at Carroll County Housing Authority as a recipient of their monthly food deliveries.    

Thus, we are extremely excited for all our CCHA residents, as they can look forward to receiving a variety of delicious locally home grown food in the near future.  Watch for a flyer to announce the date/time of our first food delivery at our Mest Manor Food Pantry. 

Currently, JDLF is offering pork, beef and chicken from Arnold’s Farm, yogurt and sour cream from Dairyland Farms, corn meal (with recipe) from Hazzard Free Grains, eggs from various farms, and some additional items.  As the seasons progress, they will offer a variety of fresh produce.
