Fresh Food Drive: Give the Gift of Local Food

Fresh Food Drive: Give the Gift of Local Food to A Family in Need

Mother Earth Food is raising funds to provide area families in need with a weekly bin of fresh local produce delivered right to their door for all of 2019!  Healthy, local food for a whole year!

Mother Earth Food, a local & organic food delivery service, is partnering with charitable organizations within North and South Carolina to find families in need that could benefit from receiving a weekly delivery of fresh produce right to their front door.  

Families who have fallen on hard times often don’t have the means to source high quality, fresh produce and instead are left to consume the canned food from typical food drives that lack the nutritional value found in fresh produce. 

At Mother Earth we believe that ALL people should have access to healthy food.  Let’s work together this holiday season to bring organically grown, local fruits and vegetables to those that could benefit most!


How it works: 

1) Click the donate* button and choose the amount you would like to contribute.  

2) The funds will then be pooled and families will be selected from the list of eligible applicants. 

3) The families selected will receive their produce bin the first week of January.  Your gift immediately contributes to feeding a family the first week of 2019.  

 
Who’s eligible to receive a free produce bin?

1) Must be a family in need (minimum 1 adult and 1 child)

2) Must reside within the delivery radius of Asheville, NC; Charlotte, NC; or Greenville, SC

3) Must be willing and able to cook and incorporate fresh produce into their meals


What comes in a bin?
