Desert Farms2Table distributed over one million pounds in 2022 produce season to our 3 programs (Farms2Table, B.R.E.A.D., and Helping Hands) supplementing meals with fresh nutritious rescued produce in Arizona communities while reducing food waste.
Farms2Table partners with community groups and nonprofit organizations transporting fresh nutritious rescued produce to the parking lot of a community and host a farmers market like environment distributing fruits and vegetables that cannot be sold to supermarkets, restaurants, or other sources due to size, shape, color, or seasonal market pricing. we ask for a $15 donation from supporters shopping at our farmers market or prepackaged produce box locations to help cover programmatic or transportation expenses so we can host a Farms2Table farmers market every Saturday morning. Our Early Bird and Drive Up - Express services are offered as an option to help supporters who cannot shop at our normal business market hours. Supporters can also shop at our local vendor booths consisting of arts & crafts, bakery goods, honey and much more.
