The Nelson Food Cupboard is a barrier-free food bank. We strive to offer a wide variety of healthy food options to our customers. Our project for this year is to offer our customers as much locally-grown produce as possible. We run a couple of innovative programs that make it possible to provide local produce on a low budget. We will continue to encourage Nelson-area residents to “Grow a Row” for the Food Cupboard. Our most wanted vegetables include potatoes, carrots, green beans and squah. And our volunteers will continue to harvest unwanted fruit and garden produce through our “Harvest Resuce” project. Last year we recused and shared $15,000 worth of fresh produce! We believe healthy food is a human right. We look forward to working with the community to provide local produce options.
