Anyone who's interested in taking part in our program can sign up by clicking here

2) We prepare fresh, ready-to-eat meals!

Our menu is adjusted to rotate with seasonal ingredients and is created with attention to taste, nutritional value and freshness by our culinary team!

3) Volunteers deliver!

Our volunteers deliver meals straight to your home for your convenience for free! 

Along with feeding and aiding the citizens in our communities, we also created a plan for educating others on nutrient dense foods and how to obtain them while being on a budget. Our future objective is to go beyond the borders of Lower Bucks County and work together with other nonprofit organizations within our category towards winning the battle against hunger and isolation within members of our community.

Projects


What we're working towards...

Other than feeding our neighbors in Lower Bucks County, we intend to:

Help our Local Farms:

Our goal is to obtain as many ingredients as possible from local and organic farms in order to achieve the most nutrient dense foods. Doing so will help stimulate our local economy and support our hard-working local farmers. It's a win-win!

Host Fundraising events:

By creating fundraisers that educate and help raise awareness about malnutrition and elderly neglect, our community can help us accomplish our mission! We plan on hosting 5K walks to raise money, distributing informative pamphlets at community gatherings and locations such as churches, YMCA's, senior centers and emergency service centers.

Work With And Support Other Charities:

Working with other charities with the same goal opens a lot of doors, not only to our organization but the community as well. By joining forces, we can use resources that weren't at our disposal in order to greater our efforts towards fighting hunger and isolation.

Why Local


What does "local" mean? 

- A local diet consists of foods that are between 1 hour's drive and 100 miles away. The average dinner travels 1,500 miles from its source to your dinner plate.

We buy local For many reasons...

Fresher, more delicious foods!

Foods that are grown on small scale, local farms taste better and are of higher quality! This is because the farmers who grow and raise these foods pay more attention to the quality and variety of their products unlike their industrial counterparts.

Health Benefits!

Numerous studies have shown a direct correlation between cheaply made, poor quality, processed foods and an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, joint problems, and many types of cancers. By consuming locally grown products, your foods' quality far surpasses anything that's been transported from industrial food factories. 

Better for the environment!

Buying local helps reduce the amount of carbon-dioxide and other greenhouse gasses that are in the air we breathe. Foods travel much shorter distances and are subject to using less packaging materials, less time being refrigerated, and in turn, create less waste products. Even if a small scale farm is not organic, farmers who are invested by their community are more likely to farm responsibly. 

More Jobs and taxes stay within the community!

When you buy from local businesses, money is more likely to stay within the community! Local businesses are more likely to use other local businesses, local banks and other local services to support their operations. 

When money is spent at a locally owned store, $45 out of $100 stays within the local economy, as opposed to $15 out of $100 that stays from a Big Box/Chain Store. That’s 3X more money that stays within local communities!
— Institute for Local Self-Reliance and Friends of Midcoast Maine, "The Economic Impact of Locally Owned Businesses vs. Chains: A Study in Midcoast Maine."

Hardworking farmers are Rewarded!

Farming isn't easy and it's even harder when a community doesn't support those who do. That's why when produce is bought from local farmers markets or stores that sell local products, we help reward farmers' for their hard work! On average, 0.90¢ on the dollar goes back to the farmer when bought locally! However, non-local profits return only 0.27¢ on the dollar to the farmer. The rest of the money goes towards marketing, distribution, etc.

Buying organic comes with its benefits!

Organic foods taste better!

While each individual has his or her own preferences, hundreds of chefs and culinary experts across the nation are choosing to buy and cook with organic foods because they believe it has superior taste and quality! Scientists happen to agree!

Organic foods are not necessarily more expensive!

There is often a misconception that organic foods always cost double or even triple the price. While that may be true in supermarket chains, organic foods can cost the same, even less than their non-organic counterparts! As the demand for organic food grows, the prices will continue to come down. However, when the cost is higher, it's due to the following facts:

  • Organic farmers don't receive federal subsidies and other types of funding unlike conventional farmers.

  • The prices of non-organic foods don't reflect the environmental cleanups that our taxes help pay for. 

  • Organic farming requires more labor and management.

  • The higher prices reflect the true cost of growing foods without additional funding from the government.

Go Green!

Organic foods are more eco-friendly! They help reduce pollution, toxins, and chemicals out of the air, water, soil, and our bodies. Invisible and odorless pesticides and other poisons creep into communities all over the nation and effects each and every one of us. If more people bought organic foods, we would promote more farms to go organic and eventually, eliminate all off-farm pollution!

Rebuild our ecosystem and restore our soil!
