The Southwest Washington Food Hub has two unique programs to support non-profit and government agencies with combating food insecurity in rural and urban communities in Thurston, Mason, Grays Harbor, Pacific, and Lewis County.
Our role as farmers is to feed our community
The Food Security Box program provides a weekly box of produce grown by Co-op members and includes access to training videos and weekly newsletters with instructions on how to prepare and preserve food.
Participants in this program receive boxes packed with locally produced nutrient-dense vegetables and fruits. These boxes contain an average of $35 of value and reflect what is fresh and in-season. During the winter you will see more greens, root vegetables such as potatoes, beets and carrots. During the summer you will see more summer squash, strawberries, melons, corn, tomatoes, etc.
Boxes may be purchased individually or in blocks. We will work with your unique agencies need to fit the program to your needs.
Additional add-ons include local breads, cheese, yogurt, eggs, and meat.
The Direct to Food Bank Program positions the Hub to collaborate with food banks and food access programs, on behalf of their farmer-owners, to increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables for food bank customers.
This program offers the ability to aggregate and deliver bulk orders of regionally produced agricultural products to food banks in rural and urban parts of Thurston, Mason, Grays Harbor, Pacific, Pierce, and Lewis counties.
If you are interested in purchasing either program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries. Logistics, cliental, and design of the project can be determined with the General Manager of the food hub.
