In 2015, please support us in Pick.Click.Give.
It's that time again. As we head into 2015, the Sitka Local Foods Network hopes you will support us in the Pick.Click.Give. charitable giving program when you apply for your Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend.

Your support helps us in our mission to promote and encourage the growing, harvesting and eating of local foods in Sitka and Southeast Alaska. Your contributions support the Sitka Farmers Market, St. Peter's Fellowship Farm communal garden, educational programs on growing and preserving local food, the sustainable use of traditional foods, and other local foods-oriented programs in Sitka. 

Eligible Alaskans can file for their PFDs starting at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1 through midnight on March 31. Go to and follow the application's directions. Near the end of your application you'll be asked if you want to participate in the charitable giving program. Click yes, and you'll be taken to the Pick.Click.Give. part of the application. Search for the Sitka Local Foods Network and add a contribution in multiples of $25. There are more than 500 participating nonprofits from around the state, including 22 from Alaska.

Anybody who makes a Pick.Click.Give. donation will be entered into the Double Your Dividend Sweepstakes, where 10 lucky Alaskans win a second PFD. We thank you for your support.
