The event is co-hosted with Healing Journeys, a Bay Area non-profit supporting people with all types of cancer, and will feature workshops, demonstrations, and presentations.

 

Food for People, 2010 - 2014    $15,000 plus $24,500 raised for a total of $39,500 (or more as final numbers for 2014 are not yet in)

Grants from the "Locally Delicious Food Fund" to Food for People (FFP), our local food bank are used to hire local farmers to grow produce for their clients. Crops are selected to provide a diversity of produce throughout the growing season and encompass items that FFP knew their clients will know how to use and enjoy eating. See details at Locally Delicious Food Fund.

To support local agriculture while providing fresh produce for low-income families and seniors, please consider a donation to Food for People's Locally Delicious Food Fund.  Locally Delicious will give a free copy of the book Locally Delicious or LunchBox Envy for donations of $50 or more.  The donation is directly to Food for People, so be sure to include that you want the money to go to the Locally Delicious Food Fund on their donation form. Food for People will contact you to find out which book you want.

Potawot Community Food Garden, 2011, 2012 and 2014    $1,110 (total)potowatgardenfeast

In 2011, Locally Delicious gave $300 to the United Indian Health Services' Potawot Community Food Garden to purchase seeds for plant starts for distribution to Yurok and other local Native American Tribal members in Del Norte and Humboldt Counties.


In 2012, Locally Delicious gave $500 to purchase more seeds and to provide transportation for students from Klamath River Early College of the Redwoods (KRECR) to visit the reknowned Potawot Community Food Garden run by United Indian Health Services. Students learned about planting, gardening, harvesting, and cooking fresh food from the garden under the supervision of the "Heirloom Tomatoes", UIHS Potawot's Coordinator Alison Aldridge, Head Gardener Ed Mata and Assistant T. Griffin. At right, students at Potawot enjoy a nutritious, simple lunch that they helped to harvest.

In 2014, Locally Delicious gave $310 to the United Indian Health Services' Potawot Community Food Garden to purchase seeds for plant starts for distribution to local Native American Tribal members in Del Norte and Humboldt Counties.

 

Humboldt Poultry Cooperative, 2010    $400

This grant went to purchase a scale needed to complete the Mobile Processing Unit. This unit enables local organic farmers to process poultry in compliance with USDA regulations and to sell at farmers' markets or from their farm, increasing local food security. Residents of Humboldt County are now able to enjoy local pasture-raised poultry and local rabbit. Read more about this venture in the North Coast Journal article and Food For Thought blog.


Humboldt County Office of Education, 2010    $400    2013  $500

This grant enabled over 400 elementary school students to visit local farms as part of the Farm to School program. Locally Delicious funding was matched by the Humboldt Chapter of the Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF). The Humboldt County Office of Education Farm to School program is part of CAFF's statewide initiative to provide nutrition education for youth, including farm and farmers’ market field trips, farmer-in-the-classroom visits, school garden activities and teacher trainings.


Humboldt Chapter - Community Alliance with Family Farmers, 2010, 2012, 2013    $775

This grant contributed to the production of a calendar and to general work that supports the mission of the Humboldt Chapter of the Community Alliance with Family Farmers.
