FARMS to COMMUNITIES brings fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms to families like yours in Oakland, California.

In these times, it is more important than ever that we support each other as a community – we’re all in this together!

Welcome! Bienvenidos!

FARMS to COMMUNITIES is a new initiative by Growing Together in partnership with the Numi Foundation that was launched to address food insecurity in Oakland during the pandemic.

Since the pandemic started, we’ve been supporting local farmers and communities by connecting them through food. Thanks to the generosity of our funders, we have been buying fresh produce from farmers and delivering it to families at no cost to them.

We are now transitioning to a community based, BUY ONE – HELP ONE model:
When you order home delivery of abundant fruits and vegetables, we’ll give the same delivery to a qualified family in our community for a reduced rate of $10!

If you live in Oakland, please Sign Up today!! Live elsewhere? Donate anyway!

BUY ONE – HELP ONE!

Just $35/week

You’ll receive a generous assortment of approximately 12-15 pounds of farm fresh vegetables and fruits – and you’ll be providing fresh food for another family.

WE SUPPORT
LOCAL FARMERS!

We source food directly from local organic and sustainable farms and strive to purchase food from small farms owned by women and people of color. We’re supporting many local farmers who have lost business during the pandemic as their usual sales to restaurants and companies are drastically reduced. Thanks for helping keep small farmers going!

WE HAVE HELPED OVER 3,200 FAMILIES!

Thank you for helping us continue to provide this important service to our school children and families in Oakland. Without your participation we won’t be able to continue this important service of delivering fresh health food – so please sign-up today!

Thank you!
