Fresh Farmacy 2020

This page is a resource for Fresh Farmacy participants. For general program information, go here.

Welcome to our Fresh Farmacy Program! We are so glad to have you. This program began in 2015. Since day one, the program has helped make our community healthier, and has supported Virginia farmers, by getting healthy, local food to people who need it.

In light of COVID-19, we know that access to healthy, local food is more important than ever. At the same time, local farmers are struggling to find new ways to sell their food, as many businesses where they sold their food have closed. Your participation in this program directly supports our local farmers, and thanks to community partners, we have expanded our program to reach more than 600 homes – nearly doubling the amount of homes served last year.

Much of the food is sourced from Local Food Hub partner farms in Virginia. You can learn more about our partner farms here. We sometimes work with food hubs and farms in North Carolina, South Carolina, or Georgia, in order to provide more variety of produce in your bag and to support more farmers. In turn, those food hubs in other states will purchase produce from our Virginia farmers as well, to offer more variety to their consumers.

This webpage is designed to offer additional information about the food in your bag, to share cooking and eating tips, and to tell you more about our farmers. If you are a current participant, below are the weekly “What’s in my Bag?” inserts, and as well as additional cooking and recipe information that you may find helpful.

Bienvenidos a nuestra programa de Fresh Farmacy!  Estamos contentos de tenerlos.  Este programa empezó en 2015. Desde el primer dia, este programa ha ayudado a nuestra comunidad para ser más sano y ha apoyado a granjas de Virginia, consiguiendo comida sana y local a gente que la necesita.

A la luz del COVID-19, sabemos que el acceso a comida sana y local es más importante que nunca.  Al mismo tiempo, granjeros locales están luchando para encontrar nuevas maneras de vender su comida, porque muchos negocios donde vendieron su comida se han cerrado. Tu participación en este programa apoya los granjeros directamente, y gracias a nuestros partidarios de la comunidad, hemos expandido nuestro programa a más de 600 casas – casi doble del año pasado.

Mucho de la comida viene de granjas compañeras del Local Food Hub en Virginia.  Puedes aprender de nuestras granjas compañeras aquí.  Algunas veces trabajamos con food hubs y granjas en Carolina del Norte, Carolina del Sur, o Georgia, para proveer una variedad de productos en tu bolsas y apoyar más granjeros.  En turno, estos food hubs en otros estados compran productos de nuestros granjeros en Virginia también para ofrecer una variedad a sus clientes.

Este pagina es diseñada para ofrecer información adicional de la comida en tu bolsa, para compartir consejos de cocinar y comer, y para contar más de nuestros granjeros.  Si tu eres un participante actual, abajo hay la sección añadida “Que Hay en mi Bolsa?”, y tambien hay mas recetas y informacion de cocina que puede ser útil.
