    Sign up for Farmigo Produce Delivery!
    “This is Dan with Farmigo, and I wanted to thank everyone for their participation last week at our first initial pick-up at Madera Elementary. It was so great meeting many of you, and my colleague Nate and I were incredibly impressed with the Madera school garden. I wanted to remind everyone that there is a weekly deadline of Sunday @ Midnight to change their food order for every Tuesday pick-up. If no changes are made, the same order from the previous week will be delivered on Tuesday. Thanks again! -Dan”
