Everyone's Harvest's mission is to provide access to healthy, affordable fruits and vegetables through certified farmers’ markets and community food programs.
Healthy, fresh food should be for everyone, regardless of age, race and economics. Everyone’s Harvest aims to meet the challenge of food insecurity in local communities through innovative nutrition programs that create partnerships between farmers markets and health care organizations. That means at the nonprofit’s six farmers markets—serving more than 2,500 families each week in Salinas, Marina, Seaside and Pacific Grove—low-income families can use public food assistance benefits and expand their buying power through Market Match. The Big Idea is to empower families in need, giving access to fresh fruits and veggies from the markets using Fresh Rx “prescriptions,” in collaboration with local physicians and health care partners.
Thanks to Everyone’s Harvest, I can ‘prescribe’ the best ‘medicine’ for my patients: fresh organic fruits and vegetables in our farmers markets. On behalf of my patients, our most sincere gratitude.
