Farm Share Supports Healthy Families

The VINES Farm Share program has been running strong for the past eight growing seasons. Going from just 35 weekly shares the first year to over 200 each of the past two seasons, the program has changed and expanded over the years. One thing will always remain the same, though, Farm Share allows families and individuals of all incomes to support our local farmers and create interesting meals together.

One of our Farm Share members this year is a young person, Neveah, who has been supporting her family’s healthy goals by cooking meals for them with their share. Neveah shared her story and thoughts on her experience with VINES Farm Share with us:

My name is Nevaeh, I am fifteen years old. I love to cook dinner for my family of seven! My family and I are a part of VINES Farm Share this season and have loved it.

This year was our first year trying it out and it has helped our family tremendously in many different ways. It has helped our health and goal this year which is, Eat Better, Move More. 

I used the veggies in soups, salads, and other delicious foods. To make these delicious meals possible however, my mom and I would first take two or three veggies we didn’t know how to use, and look up how to use them on the internet. The morning after we got our Farm Share we meal planned for the week so we would know when to use the things that spoiled faster. I would also prep the day or morning before the meal by chopping the veggies, then sticking them into containers in the fridge. 

VINES Farm Share has really helped my family, and I hope to continue doing it next year!

Thank you so much to Neveah for sharing her story with us and to everyone who makes Farm Share possible. Your donations, along with a grant from the COVID-19 Community Response Fund Alliance, allowed us to give an even deeper discount of up to 75% off a weekly share to area families.
