Washington’s Green Grocer -- a local food delivery service that sources local and seasonal products -- is generously partnering with FRESHFARM FoodPrints this school year. This partnership allows us to use ingredients grown by local farmers in every recipe students prepare.

Washington’s Green Grocer is a natural partner for FRESHFARM; we work with some of the same farmers and both strive to strengthen the local food system. WGG sources from over 100 Mid-Atlantic local growers and is committed to being DC's best farm-to-doorstep grocery delivery service.
Each week, our FoodPrints teachers compile a list of market ingredients needed for recipes they will prepare with students the coming week. Then, every Sunday morning, our lead shopper, Danielle Tutrone, purchases hundreds of dollars of ingredients at the Sunday Dupont FRESHFARM Market. She sorts everything into insulated coolers labeled with each school’s name and address. 
Washington’s Green Grocer comes by the Dupont Market each week to pick up cooler bags brimming with produce. They store the food overnight and deliver the bags to each of our eight partner schools on Monday morning.

Washington’s Green Grocer shares our commitment to providing healthy, local foods to the community. Their storage and delivery allows FoodPrints to cook more nutritious recipes with our students and to provides additional financial support to our local farmers. 

Thank you Washington’s Green Grocer!
