Our revolutionary mission is to "Connect Farmers To People & Reconnect People To Real Food"

WE ARE BUILDING FARMER OWNED GROCERY STORES & CO-PACKING FACILITY! WE HAVE 90 DAYS TO BUY THE BUILDING!
PRE-DEVELOPMENT FUNDS ARE NEEDED TO COMPLETE RENOVATIONS OF OUR FIRST STORE & SECURE SITE CONTROL OF THE MANUFACTURING FACILITY!
One critical aspect that the organization addresses through its Future Food Producer programs is the value-added products developed by farmers, co-ops and urban growers. The food supply chain is often fragmented and inefficient leading to significant challenges for farmers to earn a sustainable income. Traditional farming practices alone may not be sufficient for farmers to thrive financially and build resilient businesses.
Value added products are essential for farmer entrepreneurs because they allow them to generate higher profits by incorporating additional processing, packaging and branding to their raw agricultural products. By creating value added products farmers can diversify their offerings differentiate themselves in the market and capture a larger share of the consumer market.
Furthermore consumer packaged goods contribute to the overall effectiveness and sustainability of the food supply chain. When farmers transform their raw products into value added items such as jars of farm fresh vegetable soup, gourmet sauces or consumer packaged culturally relevant family recipes, it reduces the reliance on middlemen and increases their economic threshold. This localization of production and processing minimizes carbon emissions supports local economies and fosters community resilience.

You can join the food revolution and support the transformative efforts of Green Table Talks and Roots & Vine Produce And Cafe as we forge a connection between farmers and people, while revitalizing our relationship with real farm fresh food. Together, we can reshape the way we eat, nourish our bodies, and build healthy families.

Green Table Talks, a visionary non-profit organization, dedicated to fostering a deep appreciation for the life work of Farmers and preserving the health in our families. Together we promote education, awareness, and action to empower both farmers and consumers in embracing healthier quality of life. With our innovative programs and initiatives, we strive to create a resilient and equitable food system, truly eliminate food deserts and provide access to healthy grocery options in food desert communities.

Roots & Vine Produce And Cafe, an emerging grocery chain, shares Green Table Talks' vision and mission. They are committed to sourcing fresh, locally-grown produce and supporting regional farmers. By providing a vibrant, FEE FREE marketplace for sustainable food, they aim to reconnect people with the origins of their food, so that everyone can make informed choices about what they consume.

Now, we invite you to be part of this inspiring movement by contributing to our fundraiser. Your donation will directly support the expansion of our initiatives, which include:

1. Farmer Support Programs: Green Table Talks works closely with a large network of BIPOC farmers, offering resources, training, and mentorship to help them adopt sustainable practices and improve their business models. By empowering farmers, we strengthen our entire food system and enrich our communities.

2. Food Education and Outreach: Our organizations collaborate to educate and inspire individuals of all ages about the importance of real, whole foods. Through engaging workshops, community events, and educational materials, we empower people to make conscious choices about their nutrition, sustainability, and environmental impact.

3. Food Access: Together, we establish grocery stores in under-served areas, providing opportunities for residents access fresh produce, and build solidarity. We believe that everyone deserves access to nutritious food, regardless of their economic or social circumstances.

4. Supporting Farmers: By supporting farmers, we create vibrant economy and provide direct markets for agricultural producers. Our collective efforts help farmers thrive and enable communities to access fresh, wholesome produce conveniently.

Your generous contribution will have a lasting impact on the lives of farmers, individuals, and communities. Together, we can create a brighter, more sustainable future for all. Join us in rebuilding our connection with real food and empowering people to make healthier, more conscious choices.
