Look at all that history! All but one of these kids have come with us to meet our partner small holder farmers or helped us with our advocacy. Now we're all together in this early World Food Day celebration to ask our government and the masses to support a better, more sustainable, and ecological food…

To Speak of Peace

Our founder, Charlene Tan, sharing our seven year experience of Community Shared Agriculture and adventures with our 100+ partner small holder farmers over at EAT Asia-Pacific Food Forum in Jakarta.

New Terrain

This year our operations doubled with institutional buyers! Tay Freddie, one of @goodfoodcommunity's partner farmers from Tarlac, latching on to his avocados inside @healthyoptionsph's Shangri-la store in Mandaluyong.

Many Hands!

Thanks to our awesome industrial engineer volunteer, Angelique, we have improved our operations 500%!! So as the shipments come in, we do quality control (see above) and portion the veg according to the recommended quantities. They are then packed in an assembly line process, heaviest first and leafies last. Except for the salad packs which…

We have a home!

On 15th Avenue, you’ll see Art in Island, then a 7-Eleven (ironic, we know) and this nifty sign right by it that the property manager kindly strung up for us. Follow it into the lobby and say hello at Unit 108! Our farmers came to visit! It’s strategically located close to the bus stations where…

The Year 2016 is the International Year of Pulses. Apart from being good sources of protein, its plants are also nitrogen fixers. Yummy and helpful, now that’s what I’d call a super cool food. To know more about this year-long celebration, check out United Nation’s website http://bit.ly/1YTc0UV
