Altadena Farmers' Market No-Contact Market

Quick Overview: Volunteers are needed to help with our no-contact distribution of food to our customers and low-income senior free box recipients. Mission or Broader Program Description: Our goal is to make healthy food accessible in the food desert of West Altadena. Impact: Many of our customers are immune-compromised and don't feel comfortable shopping in conventional grocery stores. Our market offers a safe alternative for purchasing fresh produce.
