Where Does the Food Go?

Our farmers grow great food on this unique urban farm, using only organic methods. Here's the lowdown on what we do with it.

The Veggie Box: Community Supported Agriculture

More than 100 families share in the harvest every season by becoming members of our community supported agriculture program. Whether you're a member or not, anyone can visit the farm during store hours to buy the produce we're growing. Read more here.


 

Veggie Prescriptions

Doctors prescribe our FreshRx program to patients with diet-related illnesses. We fill those prescriptions with nutrition education classes and fresh veggies for those patients to take home and eat. Read more about the program here.

Food Donations

We donate produce every week to the Society of St. Andrew, the Salvation Army, and other local organizations that feed the hungry. Thanks to our partnerships with volunteers from St. John's Episcopal Church and Holy Trinity Lutheran church, who use some of our greenhouse space to grow food, we donated over 8,000 pounds of produce in 2017.


Food Deserts

Our mobile produce market, The Veggie Van, brings fresh fruit and produce to areas of the city where residents lack access to grocery stores. Volunteer drivers and passenger-helpers make this program possible. Read more here.

Restaurants

You can also find our food in delicious dishes at area eateries that support a farm-to-table philosophy. It doesn't get much more fresh and local than produce grown in the heart of the city!
