Where does the food come from?

FruitShare: The fruit you will receive is harvested in our FruitShare program. This program actively works to reduce food waste while feeding those in need. We coordinate groups of volunteers to harvest previously unused trees in the Salt Lake Valley; The volunteers keeps some, the homeowners keep some, and the majority is donated to local hunger relief efforts

 

Small Farm Initiative: The vegetables you will receive are grown by urban farmers in training as part of our Small Farm Initiative program at our Community Farm in South Salt Lake City. This program teaches new urban farmers how to grow as much organic produce as possible in a small amount of space using sustainable growing practices. 

 

Why are we selling it? Our Canner’s CSA, FruitBox, and other earned income programs are unique ways for us to become more self-reliant as an organization. By purchasing a product or services from our organization, you are directly supporting our programs and the work we do in the community.
