A program of Petaluma People Services Center, Petaluma Bounty is improving the quality of food offered by emergency food distributors through the Bounty Hunters gleaning program. We are increasing low-income consumers’ purchasing power through local affordable food incentives such Market Match, sliding scale farm stands and CSA memberships, as well as maximizing awareness and participation in federal food programs such as WIC, SNAP, and Meals on Wheels. We are increasing food literacy – knowledge of how food is grown and where it comes from – for children, youth and adults. We are working to change attitudes and appetites for healthy food and active lifestyles. We are expanding our community’s capacity to grow its own food by supporting the construction of community gardens and empowering others by sharing our knowledge. And finally, we are engaging our whole community to become active, informed agents of change of their food system.
The fruits of our collective efforts include 8 community gardens, over 670,000 pounds of fresh produce diverted into the emergency food system, an urban educational farm, award-winning community-based programming on nutrition and health including Produce Rx and ALIVE, farm education and food literacy, gardening, and innovative affordable local food incentives including Famers’ Market LIFE and sliding scale farm stands and CSA boxes.
