Food is Free Tacoma

Food is Free Washington believes that access to healthy, fresh food makes communities stronger. We strive to close the gap among existing services for Washingtonians in need of food by providing equitable access to healthy, locally grown organic produce, at no cost, to those who need it. Fresh produce, especially organic produce, is cost prohibitive even when paying for it with EBT. Local, accessible, and free healthy food options are missing in our current food systems and leaving out segments of our communities. We believe that fresh healthy food should not be a luxury, and that everyone should have access to it. At our Food Independence Garden (FIG) Share Days we share what we've harvested from our FIG Gardens just hours before. If you would like to donate your harvest for one of our FIG Share Days please contact us at [email protected] to schedule an appointment to receive your donation.

ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
