Farm stand sales have exploded, increasing 82% from 2017 to 2018. Like many local food banks, ROAR sees firsthand the growing food security gap, and is working hard with neighbors and community organizations to respond with sustainable solutions.

The need for fresh, affordable produce in south Seattle neighborhoods is greater than we can meet. We’re asking you to dig deep if you’re able and fund the (bigger, better) future of this project.

  • We have outgrown both fleet and fridge, and your dollars will expand infrastructure to grow our capacity.
  • Your gift supports the local food economy, putting money in the pockets of small and beginning farmers and local farmers of color.
  • Donations help us leverage incentive and access programs like SNAP and Fresh Bucks.

Help us #feedthepeople — visit our donation page through Seattle Parks Foundation to make a tax-deductible gift.

Give at whatever level is comfortable for you — we believe in the sliding scale! Your meaningful gift of $1 or $10,000 connects you to a vast network of amazing folx improving food access and supporting local farms. Whether you’re a donor, customer, organizational partner, or secret admirer, THANK YOU for joining us in this food access adventure!

John and Maria rely on the farm stand to feed their families, shopping with ROAR among other food vendors in Plaza Roberto Maestas at El Centro de la Raza.
