The Vegetable Connection's mission is to create a healthier community through food education, increased access to nutritious food, and supporting local farms.
In 2018, Feeding the Families program will assist 20 low-income families access locally grown, organic vegetables from one of our five Community Supporting Agriculture partner farms for the entire growing season. We ask participants to contribute toward their share, increasing the personal investment in eating healthier and a sense of empowerment.
We also provide food education for our families and the community through tastings of recently harvested vegetables and workshops on growing, preparing and preserving food.
This fundraising effort will assist 5 families with fresh vegetables.
