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.
This year we are working to increase food access in the following ways:
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 continue to coordinate the Birchwood Farmers Market and offer "market match" program for EBT sales, meaning your EBT funds go twice as far.
Each year we grow a number of crops for the Bellingham Food Bank's "Food Bank Fresh" program. This year we are growing 1000 pounds of beets and 300 pounds of tomatillos for them.
