Plant-based Food Share

PBFS serves low-income, underserved urban communities who live in food deserts and includes: African American, Latinx, & BlPOC children, families, elders, and domestic violence victims. They provide food boxes with organic produce, pantry essentials, and fresh baked goods, and culturally relevant, prepared meals. PBFS does this work as a way to heal our communities, to inspire community, and to encourage healthy lifestyles for those that are underserved and have historically been unable to grow their own food or access healthy foods.

Sign-ups for boxes open every Wednesday at 6:30 pm. PBFS still has boxes available for pick-up this Sunday or Monday; delivery may be available in certain cases. To sign up, visit:
