Become a Friend of Food Roots

Becoming a Friend of Food Roots through a recurring monthly or annual donation is the best way to sustain our work. By providing us a reliable source of income, we are better able to plan ahead with an understanding of the resources available to us.

We depend on community giving to carry out our mission. It’s the support of individuals and businesses that allows us to get hundreds of kids every year out into school gardens. That same support allows us to provide capital and financial literacy classes to beginning farmers and food entrepreneurs; provide support for and expand farmers markets; develop community garden spaces and provide free adult garden classes for community members with limited means; and increase access to nutritious affordable food at local markets through important awareness campaigns.

So what will your dollars do?

  • $50 supports one volunteer work party at the Tillamook Junior High garden growing fresh vegetables for donation to a local food pantry site.
  • $75 supports one student participating in the Farm to School program for one school year.
  • $100 supports one adult participating in our six-week Seed to Supper workshop and learning how to garden on a budget.
  • $250 supports one micro-farmer selling locally grown food as a vendor at Food Roots’ FarmTable throughout the sixteen week farmers market season.
  • $500 supports one farm field trip for a local elementary school class.
  • $1,000 supports one farmer receiving financial training, business plan development, and $12,000 in matched funding for capital purchases to build their business.

Your support truly makes a difference, and with your donation you’ll be helping to grow a stronger local food system by supporting farmers and eaters alike.

There are two ways to become a Friend of Food Roots. You can make a recurring monthly donation or recurring annual donation. Simply click below on the frequency and level of support you want to provide and you will be taken to a PayPal page to finish your donation.
