Mobile Food Share Program
Sister’s Camelot was founded in 1997 to distribute millions of dollars worth of free fresh organic produce and whole foods. They distribute the kinds of foods you could buy at Seward Co-op or the Wedge and make weekly rounds to distributors such as Co-op Partners, Albert’s Organics and others. On any given day, they may have fresh ripe organic produce, prepackaged whole foods, bulk goods and other items that may be overstock or be near their expiration dates. The food share committee and volunteers do “random drops” where they share food unannounced at a busy intersection or neighborhood park. They meet people, discuss good nutrition and share food. After sharing, cardboard boxes are recycled and overripe produce in composted at local community gardens, with minimal waste going into the waste stream. This summer they fed people in the neighborhood during the state shut down.
