ONE IN THREE
One in three co-workers.
One in three students.
One in three of us.
In 2020, we harvested 17,570 pounds of produce and reached 1,225 families through nine distribution partners. We expect the need in 2021 will increase and we will be ready to meet it with your help.
Our mission at Firstfruits Farm SLO, to grow the finest quality produce to be freely given at no cost, is an act of love to all of us, for all of us, so we can Grow Together as a community.
