Our Programs

We focus on Food Access, Food Skills, and Food Advocacy.

Food Access

Our food access programs create accessible and affordable outlets for fresh food in places where there are few or no other options.

Food Skills

Having support to cook and eat healthy is as critical as having access to healthy food.

Whether through recipe taste testing and demonstrations or food skills education classes, we want everyone to understand a healthy diet is a great tool for healthy living.

Clinical Partnerships

We partner with healthcare providers to help community members make informed choices that lead to improved health. Working with clinical and community partners, participants receive weekly “prescriptions” of Shalom Farms fresh produce, health checks, kitchen supplies, and hands-on cooking classes with our Community Nutrition Manager.
