F.R.E.S.H. Food Hub Delivery Truck

Who we are: The FRESH Food Hub is a community food program that strives to provide better access to quality local foods and sustainable living/health education.

What we’re raising money for. To accompany our recent Paradox Community Trust grant the Hub is looking to purchase a vehicle. The vehicle will be co-op owned and managed, but available also to other producers to usage. We plan to connect with other regional food hubs and farms accessing a more diverse selection of goods and expanding our reach and effectiveness. The distribution program also intends to help Wrights mesa farmers deliver products on route to better support their needs

How we will use the money. We will be looking for a fuel efficient van with seasonal capabilities and cool storage ability.

How soon do we need the funds. Immediately. The grant was rewarded to us already so now we just need the vehicle to plan and coordinate the distribution program.

Why this means so much to us. Our main goal is to provide a market outlet for regional farms to encourage growth and sustainability in our communities. We need a shared vehicle to do this. We can help more producers and bring more products to and from Wrights Mesa.

How thankful we will be. Our co-op is solely based on community participation. we would not be here if it wasn't for dedicated and determined people living on Wrights Mesa that support us. The capital needed for the vehicle does not go into private ownership, its owned by the Norwood community as an investment and resource shared. We feel expanding our connection in the larger region is necessary for positive growth. Your participation is greatly valued and appreciated.
