Help fight hunger in our community with culturally appropriate produce while supporting an aspiring refugee farmer!
The Share a Share program uses donations from community members like you to purchase traditional Burmese vegetables and herbs such as bitter melon and lemongrass grown by Transplanting Traditions farmers. This traditional produce is then donated to PORCH, a local food pantry, who distributes it to refugee families from Burma suffering from hunger in our community. Transplanting Traditions farmers have reported that access to traditional vegetables is limited and very important to their health, and they remember the difficulty of resettling in NC and beginning to build a home here.
Access to local, fresh, and meaningful Asian produce can greatly help recently arrived refugee families flourish in their new lives.
Please donate to help this project grow! Currently, PORCH distributes produce from TTCF farmers to about 112 refugee families once a month.
Thanks so much to our partner organization, PORCH, for helping us get our produce to refugee families!
