Bringing Fresh, Locally Grown Produce to Our Food Bridge Clients
The program provides vouchers to our Food Bridge Program clients so they can purchase fresh produce from participating vendors at Fairfax County area Farmers Markets. The vouchers supplement the food and grocery gift cards they receive through our temporary delivered Food Program, as an additional resource for them to provide fresh, healthy food that meets their families' dietary needs.
Our 2016 Our Daily Veggies Program is made possible by the Junior League of Northern Virginia, which is providing a $4,000 grant and 30 volunteer service hours to help run the program, and young artis tBenjamin Breaux, who donated $600 from his art sale to help make this program possible, who has displayed works at both of our Artful Living events. We are so grateful for their support, as well as that of our long-time supporter, Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Alexandria.
I went to the farmers market this morning and it was AWESOME!! Not only was it nice to get fresh fruits and veggies for once...but the produce was 100 times better and fresher than anything in a store. Plus, I love the fact that its supporting local growers."
