Our Fresh For All program is like a traveling farmers market, setting up at the same location every week — on the same day and at the same time — so local residents can rely on the availability of a selection of fresh produce throughout the year. Many clients are also volunteers, enjoying the opportunity to support and engage with their fellow community members while also receiving free produce from the program.
Here’s a quick glance at what a few of our current clients, volunteers and staff have to say about their experience with Fresh For All:
“This program is important so that people who can’t afford produce can still have access.” -Mary, Fresh For All Upper Darby client and volunteer
“I am inspired on a daily basis by the time and energy our volunteers put in to serve our communities. If the items we provide at Fresh For All are able to provide savings on our clients’ grocery bills and put fresh, healthy food on their tables then I think we have been successful.” –Jessica Wyckoff, Manager of Philabundance Direct Programs
“Me gusta mucho tratar ayudar y conocer a más gente, y es por eso que trato de ser voluntario una vez por semana durante unas dos horas.” [English: I love to help and meet new people, which is why I volunteer once a week for two hours.] -Marisela, Fresh For All South Philadelphia client and volunteer
“I come to Fresh For All because it’s fresh, local and leaves more money in my pocket to buy protein for our meals, like shrimp or steak.” –Brandy, Fresh For All Paulsboro client
FFA is helpful to making ends meet, “because I don’t get much in food stamps. Got to stretch my budget as far as I can.” –Raphael, Fresh For All South Philadelphia client
