400,000 people in Cuyahoga and Lorain Counties live in communities where grocery stores have closed and left fast food and convenience stores as the only food options. The resulting health crisis costs all of us, but none more than the families who struggle to find access to real food. Your donation goes to our share fund, which helps low-income families afford the most nutrient dense food we can grow at our 70 acre farm in Oberlin, OH and that we can source from our network of City Fresh growers within 50 miles of downtown Cleveland. We believe that healthy food is a right, not a privilege.
Your gift is 100% tax deductible and will further our mission to build a more healthy and equitable foods system here in our region and beyond.
What can we do with your donation?
A gift of $5,000 covers the annual fuel costs of bringing more than 100,000 lbs of fresh, locally purchased produce into our cities.
A gift of $1,000 covers the costs of remineralization of our soils, which we deplete little by little each year we harvest. These must be replaced if the plants we grow are to generate their disease fighting and brain building nutrients.
A gift of $250 subsidizes a hard working family with nutrient dense food for our entire growing season.
A gift of $50 is all we need for a month of IT Support to ensure no one has to bring cash or checks to the Fresh Stop and spread germs to tens of thousands of others…
Take care of yourselves this holiday season, and be excellent to one another, like these two goofballs!
