Atlanta, GA - Archer Western's Atlanta office and project teams collected more than 1,500 pounds of food and donated over 1,700 cans to Atlanta Community Food Bank. The food bank is currently experiencing a surge in demand due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Lewisville, TX - The Archer Western team at the Upper Trinity Regional Water District volunteered and donated materials to Veterans Produce to expand and renovate its aquaponic greenhouse. The expansion will allow room for an additional 700 plants which will have a yield of about 100 plants a week. Veterans Produce was founded by retired Navy Chief, T.C. Beckett and provides organic produce for various organizations in the North Texas community. Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, Veterans Produce is assisting food banks that are struggling to keep up with demands.
