From everyone here at Farm Fresh Rhode Island, we would like to wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We are grateful to you all, who come together as a community around the appreciation of delicious high-quality foods, and the belief that everyone should have access to the local bounty grown, raised, caught, and foraged here in Southern New England.
Thank you to all of our farmer, fisher, rancher, and food producer partners who work tirelessly to make our food system so robust here in Rhode Island. Thank you to all of the farmers market shoppers, Veggie Box-ers, chefs, institutions, restaurateurs, grocers, co-ops, and other wholesale buyers who make the effort to choose locally grown products every day. And thank you to the volunteers who donate their time to help make our programs a success — we couldn’t accomplish all that we do without you.
Because of your dedication, our local food system is growing stronger. But there is still much work left to be done. This giving season, please consider a donation to the 2018 Farm Fresh Rhode Island Annual Fund.
Your tax-deductible donation will be used to grow the local food system, support local farms, and increase access to fresh, local food for everyone in our community. With your support, our community will benefit from:
- More markets offering high-quality local foods
- Better choices in tasty, fresh foods year-round
- A stronger economy for Rhode Island and our region
- Greater viability for small farmers and food producers
- More sustainable growing practices and farmlands
- Increased access to fresh food—for all
Thank you for your support, and for another year of locally grown food.
