Rapid Response Tech Volunteers:
Online Ordering Assistance
for Local Farms
Farmers are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 Epidemic and want to support with basic technical assistance to help them take protection measures that could save lives.
We believe switching to 100% online ordering and curbside pickup for farmers is the most efficient way to keep employees and the public safe. We are organizing completely free technical support to help local farms on the front lines set up online ordering systems using basic tools like free Squareup webstores.
