Seeds That Feed (STF) works with local farms, retailers, and other healthy food sources to move excess foods to accessible foods — making eating healthier a reality for tens of thousands of Northwest Arkansas residents each year.

We call it Carecropping.

Since beginning our quest to address disparities between food waste and food insecurity in March 2012, STF has collected over 120,000 lbs of locally grown produce from 64 NWA farms, as well as over 40,000 lbs of recovered foods from area retailers ─ redistributing it to 53 sites and programs serving food insecure individuals in NWA.

Each year, more than 30,000 low-income families, seniors, and differently-abled residents receive access to healthier foods through the pantries, community meals, and housing establishments currently served by the STF network.
