Mission Statement

Elk Run Farm is dedicated to growing and distributing healthy, organic produce for local food banks. Combined with education and community engagement, Elk Run is committed to serving the needs of its customers both in body and mind.

Description

Elk Run Farm is a partnership between 12 food banks of the South King County Food Coalition, Seattle-King County Public Health, WSU Extension, and Tahoma High School that addresses inequitable access to healthy foods for low-income families while promoting sustainable urban agriculture. Produce grown at Elk Run Farm, a former golf course, is distributed through South King County food banks to those in the community who can least afford it and live in areas where access to healthy food is limited.
