Farm to Freezer solves the dual problems of local farms’ producing surplus fresh vegetables in the summer—6 billion lbs. is wasted in the U.S. annually—and a need to provide those who are food insecure with more nutrient-rich food all year round.
Farm to Freezer Benefits the Whole Community
1). Provides healthier unadulterated food for those who are food insecure that can be used through the winter when fresh local vegetables are unavailable.
2). Supports local farmers by purchasing their surplus
3). Reduces the amount of food waste after Farmer’s Markets
5) Raises local awareness about homelessness, nutrition, and locally-grown food
