Zero Emission Food Delivery
Transition from dependence on oil in our fuel and agriculture industries is in process. TRFW works to accelerate the transition.
An addiction to oil and over-use of petrochemical based pesticides & fertilizers creates dead, dying and depleted soils. Use of fossil based fuels contribute to catastrophic extremes in individual weather events, rapid changes to seasonality markers entirely outside of the carbon/weather cycle understood by farmers and recorded in time frames measured in decades if not centuries.
Today, storms, droughts, precipitation and seasonal timing events are chaotic if not record breaking nearly every month. Working locally and regionally we have committed to shoulder our responsibility to develop, support and help implement innovative, non-polluting technologies.
The measure of these systems for our support is simple:
Improved Food Access
Making buying local easy and affordable
Find out where to buy locally and regionally produced foods. You can browse farmers markets and CSAs and also find resources to help make shopping local and organic more affordable. Did you know that you can use your SNAP benefits at farmers markets? Or that you can buy local produce in bulk at grocery stores and at TRFW's annual Fill Your Pantry event? Its easier than you think!
