Have You Ever Wondered What Happens to the Food Left Over From the Farmers Market?

 

 

Wonder no more!

 

At the Indoor Market, volunteers from Zero Percent come to the Market each Sunday to collect donations of left over or excess foods from vendors.  Zero Percent is a food recovery organization in Chicago that collects surplus food from grocers, restaurants, caterers, and farmers' markets and transports it directly to local nonprofits. Besides simply saving good food and getting it to folks who need it, we also help companies claim tax savings from their donations, track their losses in detail, and inform their patrons of their commitment to zero waste.

At the Outdoor Market, volunteers from Elijah's Pantry, a ministry of St. Luke's Church come to the Market each Sunday to collect donations of left over or excess food from vendors  

If you would like to help out with a food or cash donation Elijah's Pantry is located at St. Luke's Lutheran Church, 2649 N.Francisco Av. and is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 -11:00am

  CSAs

(Community Supported Agriculture) offer a box of the farmer's freshest produce or meat every week. The vegetables vary, depending on what the farmer is growing. Eating from the local foodshed brings with it so many benefits, from offering an affordable source of healthy food while reducing the carbon footprint incurred delivering that food to our plates, to supplying a connection for where our food comes from, to creating a true sense of food security. Joining CSAs help farmers thrive, while also giving you the freshest veggies available in a weekly box!

While you are shopping at the market, please ask the Farmer if they provide CSAs
