Part of our mission at Arkansas Local Food Network is “to make nutritious and delicious food available for all people.” One way that we work towards that goal is by supporting Green Groceries.
In partnership with Christ Episcopal Church, Green Groceries is a food pantry that gets fresh, local food into the hands of low-income Arkansans. Green Groceries benefits local farmers by providing them with consistent and large sources of income while getting delicious, quality, and nutritious local foods to members of our community that do not otherwise have access.
How does it work?
Every two weeks we order directly from our local farmers to create a food basket for between 20-25 families. These baskets include tons of fresh produce, farm eggs, meat, and potatoes. Best of all, these baskets include a recipe card with instructions on how to prepare the meal. In 2016 ALFN has helped provide Green Groceries with 567 meals for their participants.
Joe Lampo gathers the food donated for Christ Episcopal Church’s Green Groceries program.
