Growing The Table

Supporting regenerative, BIPOC, LGBTQ+ & women-owned farmers, in order to nourish families, reduce food waste & save farms during the COVID-19 crisis.

We’re helping to shift demand in the food supply chain towards a regenerative future & ensure greater racial & gender equity in the new economy. In short, we pay struggling & marginalized farmers to grow food for Californians facing food insecurity.

A Box of Dignity

A recipe, from celebrity chef Duskie Estes, incorporating the box items as ingredients is included.

FEED Sonoma Farmers received over $316,100, providing over 9,579 nutritious CSA boxes to food-insecure families in 2022.

The Growing the Table (GTT) initiative was cultivated by the Office of Kat Taylor in 2020 because California farmers have seen their markets decrease by 50% , leaving them with excess produce & commodities for which they cannot find buyers. Restaurants & large food service institutions, like schools & offices, are no longer consistent clients. Simply put, many California farmers are struggling to keep their farms. Farm to Pantry was one of the original partners for this initiative in Sonoma County. We delivered over 15,000 boxes in 2020 - small farmers were paid, hungry people were fed, and our volunteers loved being involved. We believe the GTT model is such a game-changer for the food system and so essential to our local farmers’ viability that, when funding ran dry in early 2021, we endeavored to keep it going on our own. Thanks to a guest appearance by Kat Taylor herself and generous “Paddle Raise” donors at our Summer Supper, we were able to raise over $100,000 for our farmers! Now, Farm to Pantry is officially running its own regional GTT hub. For more information on the statewide program, click on the link below.

Boxes are assembled at FEED Sonoma in Petaluma then delivered to food-insecure families at low-income housing units & other distribution sites around the County.

People’s faces light up when they see the vibrant and nutritious contents in the box - it’s like opening a delicious present!

We have regular weekly deliveries. If you are interested in a volunteer driving opportunity, click on the button below.
