Ensuring fresh, local food for all.
Pop-Up Farm Stand
We partner with organizations such as Albany Housing Authority, City of Albany, Phoebe Medical Center, and SOWEGA Council on Aging to bring fresh, local, seasonal produce to communities with a high population of seniors, people with disabilities, single family homes, and neighborhoods located in food insecure zones.
Our mission is to create meaningful relationships between young people and food in order to transform the school food system. Flint River Fresh helps to strengthen the food communities of tomorrow by engaging youth today.
Small Farmers Distribution Network
Small Farmer’s Distribution Network is a producer-driven aggregator, marketer, processor, and distributor of a limited line of fresh, chopped vegetables from small-scale limited resource and historically disadvantaged farmers.
FRESH COMMUNITY URBAN FARM PROJECT
The Fresh Community Urban Farm Project is a collection of community/school gardens and mini-urban farms established throughout Dougherty County School to feed people where they live.
Grow Your Groceries Workshops
Flint River Fresh is thrilled to announce the new “Grow Your Groceries” gardening workshop series that promises participants of all levels a hands-on experience exploring home food gardening topics.
SEED TO SANCTUARY
Seed to Sanctuary connects farmers with churches to help our neighbors by growing and distributing fresh produce in food insecure zones. We encourage churches to grow food in raised bed gardens on church property, volunteer at one of our community sites, or help distribute pre-made produce boxes.
Our Farmers. Our Future. Our Community.
Albany is the main hub for much of the surrounding rural region of southwest Georgia, which is primarily farmland and forestland.
Pop-Up Farm Stands
We promote access to fresh, healthy, locally-grown, seasonal food by connecting local farmers directly with Southwest Georgia shoppers through our weekly Pop-Up Farm Stand at Pretoria Fields.
