A problem to solve
in our own backyard
We launched the Direct Giving Program in 2020, the year the world was turned upside down. With food insecurity becoming an even greater concern, we challenged ourselves to find a way to give as many individuals and families as possible direct access to fresh, local, and responsible food.
To do so, we partnered up with local nonprofits to provide weekly baskets to those in our community who are most in need. With the help of $25 in Marketplace credits for each family member and a 50% discount on us on all fruits and veg, our community members are able to customize baskets of their own and receive fresh food each and every week.
The program’s impact
In the first year, the Direct Giving program was able to support about a hundred families - and we hope to continue to grow the initiative so that even more can have access to weekly baskets.
