We have fresh food. Now what?

When agencies (and the people they serve) asked how to store and prepare fresh produce, Farmer Foodshare listened, and Food Ambassadors was born.

Food Ambassadors are volunteers trained by Farmer Foodshare to go where the people are and share how to store fresh produce and how to prepare it in ways that are both economical and delicious.

At the demonstration everyone is encouraged to enjoy the  prepared dish and then receives the recipe and ingredients to make the dish at home Healthy eating just got easier!

Additionally, we've put together Veggie and Farmer Fact Sheets, and collection of simple recipes, available upon request.
