How FLV Shares works.
Feeding Laramie Valley distributes over 7,000 pounds of locally grown fresh produce each year. This is possible through production gardening at FLV gardens and farms, community yard-sharing, farmer's market vendors and individual produce donations from commercial farms, school and community gardeners.
There is no cost to join the program. The shares program is led by FLV's Food Production team and in the summer a group of AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associates. Weekly shares bag full of produce are made possible through FLV production farming and donations from local growers and farmers, bags can be picked up or delivered weekly.
Shares are given to individuals and families who are challenged by insufficient access to healthy food, as well as the Downtown Clinic, Laramie Senior Housing, and Interfaith Good-Samaritan.
