We’re so glad you asked! “Good Food” isn’t simply just fruits and vegetables. It is food that is accessible physically and economically. It is optimal for health and nutrition. It promotes dignity and overall well being for a community. However, in our complex food system, not all members of our community have easy access to nutritious, affordable food. Lack of good food disproportionately affects low income and communities of color. Evidence shows that improving access to good food is beneficial for everyone from infants to seniors. A thriving community based food system that values people, the planet and generates profit, is also known as the triple bottom line.
We have formed the Good Food Fund to create more opportunities for fresh food access to our neighbors, to obtain the technology needed to assist this effort, and to create a bridge for neighbors that are interested and able to support ways to get fresh and healthy food to those that lack it. As our organization is able, we will utilize this fund to its maximum effect in our community to invite as many people to the table of good food as we can.
