Nevada County 4-H, Nevada County Extension Homemaker’s Council (“EHC”), and the Nevada County Master Gardeners are conducting a county-wide food drive through the close of business Monday, November 16th. “Food is an essential of life and for many of our fellow citizens, both children and adults, it is not readily available.
