Flint River Fresh had the honor of advocating before the Georgia Senate Study Committee on Improving Access to Healthy Foods and Ending Food Deserts.

Because food insecurity and equal access to healthy foods are issues that affect the well-being of the entire community, we seized the opportunity to demonstrate the impactful outcomes of community-driven urban farming strategies and initiatives.

Southwest Georgia has an abundance of rich soil for growing healthy food. We aimed to encourage more support for optimal use of community green spaces to grow food as a sustainable solution to eradicating food deserts.

Because of support from the Flint River Fresh Board and community members, our success stories helped illustrate how a strong network of diverse local partners and alliances can yield more fresh food for hunger relief and increase access to healthy foods for all Georgians.

Flint River Fresh food production spaces are open to the community for education, DIY gardening skills development, and sustainable, self-sufficient food production systems. Most importantly, neighbors in need are free to harvest healthy foods for healthier eating and nutrition support.

Hey, Hey, Hey....Look at what we did today!!!

With the help of the Expo Farm team and Colquitt County FFA, we were able to move and fill 9 raised garden beds with our special, compost-based raised bed mix (part cotton, part chicken, part food waste, and part pine bark fines) at the @flintriverfresh
Backyard Demonstration Garden.

The raised beds are a new feature to this growing space. This year, we will highlight roots and stem crops (carrots, beets, turnips, lettuce, and spinach) in the raised boxes along with showcasing companion planting designs with flowers and herbs.

@sunbeltagexpo will be held on Oct. 19 thru 21st in Moultrie, GA.

Americus (Wednesday, September 8, 2021) – Today, Healthy Sumter & Flint River Fresh LLC joined forces to deliver food to more than 49 families that live in Lakeview Circle in Americus.

The families were given a bag of fruits and vegetables, courtesy of Healthy Sumter & Flint River Fresh. It is part of Phoebe Sumter’s initiative to address Food Insecurity in Americus & Sumter County as well as neighboring counties. Other initiatives include eliminating Food Deserts by creating community gardens and teaching people how to create gardens at their own home.

Special thanks to Farmer Fredo of Flint River Fresh, Pastor George Edge and Diane Roberts of the Americus Housing Authority, Councilman Nelson Brown and Captain Roger Bivins and the Americus Fire Department for their efforts to make this event a success. Also, a special thanks to Mr. Sonny Pinckard and the people at Harvest of Hope for allowing us to use their facility for storage.

Question: What do you get when organizations who are passionate about making healthy food accessible to all, especially the more vulnerable neighbors, partner?

Answer: The Smiling Faces and Sincere Compassion of the leadership and staff of Flint River Fresh, Feeding the Valley Albany, and the Family Literacy Connection!

These phenomenal community partners are the silver lining on the rain clouds today.

80 BOXES FILLED WITH Cabbage, Corn, Tomatoes, Squash, Apples, Bananas, and more including healthy recipes are headed to the kitchen cupboards in homes of families with children participating in the Family Literacy Connection after school, child development, and parent education programs.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE what we do!

As of today, MORE THAN 2️⃣5️⃣1️⃣ deliveries to Dougherty County senior or elderly neighbors living in low-income housing developments🍅🥬🍆🥕🥦🌽🫑🍌🍠🌶🥔🍑🧅🍉

Today, with the help of Mr. Melvin with Dougherty County Public Works, the Dougherty Fresh trailer rolled out again into the community with loaded bags of fresh fruits and vegetables😋🤗

Over 60 of our most vulnerable neighbors greeted the Dougherty Fresh team and volunteers with big smiles and heartfelt “Thank You.”

Thanks to community partners like Dougherty County, UGA Cooperative Extension, Feeding the Valley, and Volunteers, Flint River Fresh knocked on nearly 70 doors and successfully delivered more than 60 fresh produce bags loaded with healthy goodness (bananas, corn, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and peaches) today.
