Giving Thanks for You!

We Give Thanks for You!

Every year as we gather around our holiday tables with the ones we love, we reflect on the year behind us and give thanks. Because of your support and commitment to sustainable food, we have seen schoolchildren experience the joy of fresh produce they grew in their school gardens, farmers gain more access points to customers, and cooking class participants change the way they feed their families. We’re so humbled to walk alongside community members like you as you determine the best ways to help alleviate hunger, improve the health of our community and promote sustainable agriculture. Thank you for being a champion of this good food movement and choosing to walk with us on this journey.

From our family to yours, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.
