Our Big Idea

Everyone’s Harvest’s Big Idea is to provide healthy food to the people in our community who need it most through partnerships with family farmers and local healthcare providers.

Our five farmers’ markets serve more than 2,500 families each week in Salinas, Marina, and Pacific Grove, and our innovative nutrition programs meet the challenges of food insecurity and nutritional health in our community.

At our farmers’ markets, families can use public food assistance benefits to expand their buying power through CalFresh and Market Match.
($15 of CalFresh = $30 of fresh produce at all Everyone’s Harvest markets!)

Over the past 10 years, Everyone’s Harvest has provided more than $1,000,000 in Healthy Food Incentives to bridge the gaps in food access and nutrition.

Our Edible Education program invites local chefs to our farmers’ markets to provide cooking demos and tastings featuring healthy produce.

We empower youth to build lifelong healthy eating habits by providing Fresh Rx ‘prescriptions’ of fresh fruits and vegetables in collaboration with local physicians–to date, 750 patients and their families have benefited from the Fresh Rx program.

Local family farmers and food artisans connect directly with local customers. In 2021, Everyone’s Harvest hosted 163 farmers’ markets, helping thousands of local families to improve their nutritional health.
