Fresh Food Access

We address immediate food needs in neighborhoods through no-cost produce distributions, with over 65,000 pounds of produce shared annually.

Fresh Food Access is one of the three pillars of Greener Partners comprehensive approach to strengthening community health. It begins with community food distributions that address immediate food needs.

Healthy food should be a fundamental right, not a privilege, so our goal is to make healthy eating easier and more accessible.

Research consistently links fruits and vegetables to improved health outcomes, yet they are expensive and difficult to access in many communities. While traditional food pantries incorporate some fruits and vegetables, they are less prevalent than shelf-stable options. During the pandemic, with food system disruptions, ongoing economic impact, and surge in food insecurity, finding produce has been even more challenging. Greener Partners fills this gap.
