MINDFUL DISTRIBUTION

Going Beyond Donations

We have come to realize the task of giving away food is a highly personal endeavor but even more is the acceptance of food.  Human beings are intricately tied to food and there is a deep psychological impact tied in with hunger.

 It is our duty to give, not our duty to decide who is and is not hungry. Hunger is prevalent throughout our city and state.

Fresh food is a human right, and no one should be denied..

WHERE DOES THE FOOD GO?

While we donate most of our harvests to food banks and kitchens. We are also known to give food to any person we happen to be near. 

HOW CAN INDIVIDUALS GET SOME OF THE GOODS?

Our harvests often generate

40-100 pounds.

These large amounts are given to organizations that have the infrastructure available to distribute to those struggling with food insecurity. We donate harvests to organizations within the area of the harvest to ensure food stays within the local community. 

WHAT ABOUT OVERLY RIPE FOOD?

This is how our distribution program came to be shaped as it is. 

Working with perishable foods is a constant working of a puzzle. Especially stone fruits because of their delicate nature. Delicate fruits, such as these, are the reason behind our Mindful Distribution. Sometimes fruits are overly-ripe and need to be processed or eaten immediately. This requires quick thinking and faster movement.

WHERE DO YOU DONATE?

St. Martins, Crossroads for Women,

First Unitarians, Barrett House,

 La Plazita + SO MANY MORE

Our network is always evolving!

We welcome all suggestions of outlets and work diligently to diversify our distribution points throughout our community. It is important to us the food being given away is done with an emphasis on building human connections.  It is more than just dropping food off at a location.  

It's about the voices of those we serve.

To all of our friends, neighbors, collaborators, supporters, and contributors...

YOU make our dreams come true!
