At City Beet Farm we grow vegetables on front and backyards largely in the Riley Park-Little Mountain neighbourhood, and we love that many of our eaters live in the area as well. Unfortunately, not all of our neighbours have access to fresh, local veggies; so for the 2022 growing season, we're partnering with Little Mountain Neighbourhood House's (LMNH) Food Hub to bring our veggies to more members of our community.
Please help us make this possible! If you're a member of our CSA, shop at our farm stand, or just love local produce and want to pay that love forward, please consider contributing to our GoFundMe. We'll use everything we raise here to provide fresh vegetables to LMNH throughout the growing season. Essentially, you're buying groceries for a neighbour who needs them!
We're hoping to raise $6,000– the value of an additional 10 CSA shares. Can you help us reach our goal?!
Here's a little more about Little Mountain Neighbourhood House and the programming these funds will support:
The LMNH Food Hub is our response to our community’s increased emergency food needs and the ongoing climate crisis. Our mission is to create a local, community-led food system. We aim to reduce food insecurity in our community, and increase access to food in a way that promotes dignity, equity, respect and ecological diversity. We are dedicated to providing space to grow food, build community, and care for the land.
The money donated to City Beet will be used to grow food that will be given to Little Mountain Neighbourhood House’s Food Distribution program. This program operates one day a week and aims to provide healthy, culturally appropriate fresh produce and non-perishable food items at no cost. In addition to receiving healthy food, our food distribution program provides the opportunity for community members to build connections to one another and to staff and volunteers at LMNH. It also provides a non-judgemental, low-barrier space where individuals who are experiencing food insecurity can come and feel welcomed and supported.
Any extra donations that are not used to grow food this season will be donated to the LMNH Food Hub Programs. For more information on these programs check out their website at: https://web2.lmnhs.bc.ca/lmnhs-food-hub/
