Share Food Program distributes food to 1,000,000 neighbors in need each month, over 50% of whom are children, and 12% of whom are seniors or people with disabilities. The Nice Roots Farm is where we grow fresh fruits and vegetables that we distribute to farmers’ markets across the region, and the proceeds from those sales support our operations. Breah Banks manages the Nice Roots Farm, and her expertise and passion keep it running smoothly, year ’round. But she doesn’t do it alone.
What’s the opportunity?
Activities may include planting, mulching, watering, weeding, raking or harvesting. Sometimes we need help with routine cleaning and maintenance around the farm as well.
Whom is my volunteer work helping?
The produce from Nice Roots Farm is sold at extremely discounted cost at local farmers’ markets, and to seniors through the Farmers Market Nutrition Program. In addition to distributing fresh produce, we use the farm as an opportunity to teach local school students about urban agriculture.
