Each month we visit neighborhoods and areas with the highest need for healthy, nurtritious food. Many areas of Lee County, Florida and the surrounding areas are classified as "food deserts". Food deserts are defined  as parts of the country vapid of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers.  This has become a big problem because while food deserts are often short on whole food providers, especially fresh fruits and vegetables, instead, they are heavy on local quickie marts that provide a wealth of processed, sugar, and fat laden foods that are known contributors to our nation’s obesity epidemic. The food desert problem has in fact become such an issue that the USDA has outlined a map of our nation’s food deserts.


We're gratful for our partnerships with Midwest Food Bank-Florida Division, Panera Bread, and One Hope Church. 


Our food product consists of rice, pasta, beans, canned goods, snacks, juices, cereals, dry goods, meats & fresh produce and fruit  fresh breads & pastries from Panera Bread. For questions please contact us at (239) 645-9885.
