Greener Partners’ goal is to make fresh, local food accessible to everyone. We grow vegetables and fruits at our farms to distribute to those in need free of charge or at a significantly reduced cost. In 2017, we donated more than 20,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables, reaching hundreds of families each week at several different locations:
- Patients at Lankenau Medical Center with food from the Deaver Wellness Farm
- Low-income senior citizens in Philadelphia at Guild House Farm
- School families and neighbors at Marshall Street, Hancock and Gotwals elementary schools in Norristown
- Organizations including Philabundance, Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger & Salvation Army Family Shelter
At the majority of our distribution sites, we do much more than hand out food! We support a community of healthy eaters with recipes, food demonstrations and opportunities to cook together and eat together.
