From the website: Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to teach people the importance of fresh produce in their daily lives. We do that through classes and events such as our annual “Dinner in the Orchard.” The money that we raise goes toward subsidizing our classes for people with limited incomes who really need to know how to cook healthy foods for their families and themselves on a budget. It was founded in 2009.
The first fundraiser dinner had 25 people attending. Now we serve almost 200, due to its popularity. To learn more visit www.communityfarmkitchen.com.

Antioch residents, once again, participated in the annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4 to promote safety in their neighborhoods.
An effort of the National Association of Town Watch, according to their website,
“National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.”
In addition to police officers, firefighters serving Antioch also showed up with one of their fire engines at the gathering on Tompkins Way, which was organized by neighborhood residents Stephanie Sterling, and Steve and Roxanne Huddleston. The event at the Huddleston’s home included a potluck dinner and gave about 70 residents who attended the chance to meet and get to know each other. That way they all will better know who belongs in their neighborhood and who doesn’t.

The Antioch Police Department is excited to announce the 62nd installment of the Neighborhood Cleanup Program. This is a collaborative community effort which involves active participation from The Antioch Police Department Crime Prevention Commission; Neighborhood Watch Program; Volunteers in Police Service; community volunteers and the Public Works Department.
The 62nd Neighborhood Cleanup event will occur on Saturday, August 1st from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Hillcrest Park on Larkspur Drive. Please meet in the parking lot on Larkspur Drive.
The City of Antioch Neighborhood Cleanup program is not just for residential neighborhoods. It is a program that will change venues on a monthly basis and it will include business and commercial areas as well. Neighborhoods that are free of trash and refuse are inviting, and a clean community instills a sense of community pride.
Volunteers will receive instructions and the equipment necessary to accomplish the goal. The targeted area is within walking distance. Excluding inclement weather, future Neighborhood Cleanup events are scheduled for the first Saturday of every month and the locations will be announced in advance.
Remember, cleaning up your neighborhood can make life better for your family, your neighbors and your community.
