Mission

Our mission is to work with communities to ensure access to healthy food and the support to lead healthy lives. We seek to collaboratively transform the Richmond food system so that all people have access to good food - food that is good for our bodies, good for the environment, and good for our communities. Through hands-on experiences on the farm and in the city, Shalom Farms and our diverse partners are making a difference on dinner plates all over the Richmond area.

Grown to Go Mobile Market

Our Grown To Go Community Mobile Market provides weekly pop-up farm stands in communities with limited access to fresh, local produce. Launched in 2016, the market visits 15 locations each week from June to November, including low-income senior housing communities, community health clinics, and Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority (RRHA) communities. The Mobile Market directly connects families with an affordable source of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as community resources to maximize the benefits of a healthy diet.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Our Prescription Produce Plan is a 10 week educational support program designed to provide low risk opportunities to learn new ways to choose, prepare, and share fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet. Recent PPP cohorts have been offered in partnership with Healthy Brigade’s Food Farmacy, the Richmond Health and Wellness Initiative at VCU, and the Bon Secours’ Diabetes Prevention Program. Participants check in with health coaches every week and pick up their free prescription of Shalom Farms fresh produce as well as recipes to try at home. Participants also attend biweekly classes facilitated by Shalom Farms staff and other local experts that bring nutrition education and cooking skills together to provide resources and knowledge around preparing healthy options.

Population(s) Served
Chronically ill people

Our Healthy Corner Store Initiative, in partnership with the Richmond City Healthy District, seeks to increase physical and economic access to fresh produce in key demographic areas of Richmond. Through this program we work directly with corner stores, convenience stores, and gas stations to offer healthy options in communities with limited access to fresh, healthy food choices. In addition to year-round weekly deliveries, we provide technical assistance to store staff to build healthy retail skills. This program currently partners with 6 locations in Richmond.
