Last year, Farmer Foodshare partnered with Reality Ministries to offer the community shares of fresh, local food each week, all summer long.
Many of you also donated shares, enabling neighbors in need to experience those same North Carolina peaches and tomatoes, lettuce and eggs - food that they otherwise would have challenges accessing.
All told, 211 people benefited from Community Foodshare produce, recipes and nutrition tips - two thirds of them from donated shares. It was a win all around: 80% reported eating more produce, and 70% said they felt more knowledgeable about fresh food.
You can create that same impact again this summer.
The Community Foodshare program has grown. This year, Farmer Foodshare is partnering with three organizations - Reality Ministries and Communities in Partnership in Durham and Transplanting Traditions Community Farm in Chapel Hill. Each offers neighbors the opportunity to participate in a regular fresh food distribution/CSA. We hope you'll participate.
But we also hope you'll donate a share.
Your gift of $18 (for a week) or $180 (for a 10-week season) will bring the joy of fresh fruits and veggies to someone who wouldn't otherwise be able to access them.
Someone like Mildred.
