Gratitude & Growth

2018 SEASON RECAP

Through an amazing community effort, ROAR has seen astounding growth this year. Sales were up 82% (!!!) from 2017, nearly doubling our purchasing and direct support of small local farms. We entered into three new neighborhood partnerships in Delridge, South Beacon Hill and Meridian Center for Health, while holding steady at El Centro de la Raza, High Point, and the Seattle Indian Health Board. Our staff grew as well, and is more representative of our partner communities.

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. Donations help us leverage incentive and access programs like SNAP and Fresh Bucks.

Help us #feedthepeople — visit our donation page through Seattle Parks Foundation — and whether you’re a shopper, donor, organizational partner, or secret admirer, THANK YOU for joining us in this food access adventure!
