At City Sprouts Farm, we are dedicated to increasing access to local, organically grown food in our community.
We believe that everyone should be able to obtain fresh, nutritious food, and local food systems must prioritize the availability of quality food to those in need.
Our farm is located in the largest USDA recognized "Food Desert" in Bellingham.
We strive to make the produce we grow accessible to those who might not usually be able to afford it at the typical places where local food is found, such as food co-ops and farmers markets.
Here are some ways we have worked to increase food access:
Donations to The Birchwood Food Desert Fighters weekly "Share Spot"
Weekly donations to Sea Mar Community Health Centers
We offer our CSA on a sliding scale and accept EBT as a form of payment
We are members of the Twin Sisters and Birchwood Farmers Markets and offer "market match" program for EBT sales, meaning your EBT funds go twice as far.
We've grow a number of crops for the Bellingham Food Bank's "Food Bank Fresh" program.
