UPDATE: Thanks to you, we hit our goal of $20,000 in under 20 days!
We’re blown away. Thank you. Your generosity means 400 local families will receive farm-fresh produce for a month this winter.
Now, you have the chance to make an even bigger impact. We’re increasing our goal to $25,000, which means fresh produce for 100 more families.
(And don’t forget: through December 31st, your gift goes twice as far thanks to a matching donation!)
There’s still time to feed families who need it most.
1 in 6 San Diegans—over half a million—are food insecure. The number is even higher among children: one in five local kids don’t have enough food for an active, healthy life.
One customer at our pay-what-you-can Farm Stand said,
“I got sick about a year ago and had to close my three businesses because I wasn’t able to keep up with them. I have been struggling so much this past year—having this food is such a blessing.”
Another customer shared,
“Our family gets $16 a month on an EBT card because I have a part-time job. It’s not enough to afford healthy food.”
This is the story of families around San Diego County. For too many, their income doesn’t meet the high cost of living. Fresh food is a luxury they can’t afford, so instead they subsist on cheap, unhealthy food.
This holiday season, you can change that story for local families.
Your gift provides families with farm-fresh veggies every week for a month. And until December 31st, your gift goes twice as far! Thanks to an anonymous donor, every gift will be doubled.
Nourish your neighbors this holiday season. Let’s give 400 families a ‘fresh’ start!
