Notes from a
"This program is a lifesaver! My family lives very paycheck to paycheck. On the weeks that we can afford a little more, we leave it for someone less fortunate, but it’s always there when we can’t scrape by. It’s delicious, healthy and fresh produce which I know has benefited myself, my husband and our son greatly. This program is truly a gift."
Every week, we give away free organic produce to neighbors in need. Our GiftBox Program allows individuals and families to access an array of locally-grown, nutrient-dense whole foods — no matter what their circumstances.
This program only exists because of the generosity of our community. Each week, locals donate to our GiftBox program (via our online store and Prema Farm's online store) to offer the gift of healthy food to eager neighbors. We use those funds to gather a colorful spectrum of veggies and fruits, bagged up and ready for pick up every Sunday. The best part? One hundred percent of donated funds pay for the cost of the food, not for overhead expenses, so we get the most food possible into the hands and bellies that deserve it.

Notes from a
"The Mobile Market gift box has been a great resource for my small family, allowing us to try in season, local, healthy foods, even though we are in a much lower income bracket and couldn't afford these luxury foods otherwise. My kids have gotten to try kohlrabi, a variety of greens, and in season fruit, which was such a treat for us. As a single mom and an elementary school teacher in Washoe County School District, we don't have much to spend on try-it type of food items, even though I know the value of organic and local farming and food production, both for my children and for the local farmers. We appreciate the opportunity to get a gift box when it's available."
