Each summer season Thrive DC is supported by the generous donations of fresh foods by farms throughout the mid-Atlantic region. These farms make it possible for us to serve the freshest seasonal produce to our clients each day, a resource that many of them would not have access to otherwise. Thrive DC partners with Fresh Farm Markets, Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, and Radix Farm CSA from May through December of each year.Each week staff and volunteers visit the markets to meet with the farmers and to help bring back a bounty of fresh ingredients for our head chef. While the farmers aren't able to immediately see the impact their support makes to our clients, we know that their support makes a world of difference to our clients.
If you are interested in learning more about local markets in the Washington, DC area we encourage you to visit Fresh Farm Markets or Columbia Heights Community Marketplace.
