Food For All
Food insecurity in our community is a serious issue. Thousands of individuals are food insecure just in Carroll County alone. This means they lack reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable, nutritious food. Children are particularly affected by food insecurity, with over 11% of children in Carroll County living in food-insecure households.
MWVEG wants to help make local food accessible to community members of all income
levels. In 2020, we started the Food for All Program as a response to accessibility gaps
in locally grown food. Our mission is to nourish our community by increasing access to locally grown foods while strengthening relationships with farmers, families and the land.
We know many community members don’t qualify for the federal nutrition incentives such as SNAP but they still have a need for nutritious food. Since 2020, we have raised over $30,000 to distribute to local families to purchase local food with our partner farms, many of whom don't qualify for these other financial assistance programs, but can't afford locally grown food. Please help us continue this work by attending one of the fundraisers listed below, or making a direct donation.
