Every week, FoodWhat sets up two farm stands to work toward making healthy, organic food more accessible to the greater community. We partner with the UCSC farm to set up a stand at Bay View Elementary School in Santa Cruz and team up with Live Earth Farm to set up another at Radcliff Elementary School in Watsonville.
Parents can pick up dinner ingredients from FoodWhat farm stands and pick up their kids from summer school in one stop! This makes shopping for organic produce more convenient for busy families. We also keep our prices set for low-income families and accept EBT, making eating healthy easier on a budget and accessible to more people.
Our crew also gains some rad experience working at these stands. They get creative by managing the visual appeal of the tables to attract students and parents to check out our fruits, veggies, and bouquets. They also practice handling money and working with the public.
The Summer farm stands are over now, but will start back up in the fall.
Stay tunes for dates, times, and locations.
