Farm to Families works with community-based organizations to address availability and affordability of fresh food in North Philadelphia by:
- Facilitating the purchase, packaging, and distribution of fresh, affordable weekly boxes of fruit, vegetables, meat, and eggs from local farmers.
- Providing food and nutrition education, including food budgeting and shopping tips, basic food preparation and cooking skills, and demonstrations and taste tests, aligned with the weekly boxes.
- Leading policy change efforts to make fresh, local food available and affordable in the food deserts of Philadelphia.
