The Food Shuttle Farm is a 10-acre model of sustainability for hunger relief organizations. Food is distributed through our Mobile Markets, providing the freshest produce possible to those in need, through for-profit production to contribute to the farm's financial stability, and through farming by refugees from the Burmese Karen community.

It's important for our community to understand the relationship between growing food locally, sustainably, using organic methods, and local food insecurity. Oftentimes, the best way to understand a food system is to see it in action. That's the Food Shuttle Farm.

Rain Plan

May opt to reschedule experience with moderate to heavy rain or storms. We will make the call the night before the experience.
