Just Food: Digging Deeper
Through a partnership with Georgia Farmers Market Association (GFMA) and Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture (TLW), Sevananda Natural Foods Co-op will be hosting new initiative called Just Food. The Just Food initiative is a bi-weekly pop-up farmers market that features fresh food from local farmers. A taste of the Just Food pop up will occur on November 3rd with bi-weekly pop ups slated to launch in 2019.
Just Food serves shareholders who commit to pay a flat rate on an income-based sliding scale. Shares are purchased ahead of time to guarantee pay for hardworking farmers, and to ensure low income families have access to healthy produce. A share is a selection of ten varieties of local, sustainably grown produce that is picked up during the scheduled two hour pop-up market.
Sevananda is Atlanta’s original natural food store. And right from our opening day back in 1974, our mission has been to offer our customers food — as well as supplements, vitamins, herbs, even pet food —you can trust: where it’s from, how it’s grown, and what’s in it.
Since its beginning in 2006, Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture has used its expertise to demonstrate how food can be a bridge across diverse cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. Our goal is to use food production as the plate on which we create a culture of health and wellness in our community. Our programs and activities provide agriculture training, nutrition, education and job creation.
