Organic food has a reputation for being expensive and high-end. If calories are what you need, how can you afford to eat right? When you’re hungry nothing else matters. I grew up poor and spent some time homeless as a young woman, and I’ve never forgotten how that feels. I want this blog to be accessible to people at every income level.
Kitsap County farmers and gardeners care about getting fresh local food to homeless and low income people and families, women with children, and seniors. There’s a new page in the menu above listing some of those resources, or you can find it here: Homeless and Low Income Resources. You can check out a food bank for fresh produce, use WIC/FNMP and SNAP/EBT programs at farmers markets, and sign up for a pea patch to grow fresh food.
Fresh, local, natural and organic foods aren’t just for the well-off, they’re for everyone. The Kitsap food community is committed to making sure everyone eats, and eats real food.
