Bridging large scale food banks with local pantries, the Fresh Initiatives Supply Hub brings together the best of both worlds to create a holistic, community experience centered around food. From cooling facilities for storing fresh produce to cooking classes and health drives, FISH works to create a new culture of eating that is accessible, affordable, nutritious, and delicious!
And it doesn't stop there!
Fresh produce and classes are just the beginning! FISH partners with local farmers markets and community gardens to make sure that no excess food is wasted. With the help of UF Extension Services we offer garden boxes to enable people to grow their own food, renewing their connection with the ground from seed to compost. And our best idea yet: FISH is working to increase the technical skills of our neighbors with training in culinary arts and food safety through our Chop Program.
So join the movement!
Take a class, grow a garden, pack a sack for a child, drive a truck or sort produce. Email the FISH manager, Scarlett Amey-Wyns, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 727-488-5972 to find out how you can be a part of something so much bigger than food!
The FISH is a project funded through the generous support of the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg
