Food Access Program
To address issues of food insecurity, New Entry Food Hub established a low-income food access initiative in 2008. Food insecure households are challenged to access affordable, locally-grown fresh fruits and vegetables that are a necessary component of a healthy diet. New Entry continually seeks philanthropic community support for the specific purpose of supporting the low-income food access program.
Our Food Access initiatives provide fresh fruits and vegetables to over 2,000 individuals yearly, amounting to over $80,000 of locally-grown produce to low-income families, seniors and children. A total of 30 farmers per year benefit through earned income from sales to low-income communities. The food access program is not possible without financial support to close the gap between what consumers can afford and what farmers need to cover costs of production and earn a living wage. We rely on donations, grant resources, and your CSA membership to fund our food access work.
