Chef Nick Leahy of Saltyard (far left), Meals on Wheels staff, Lauren Carey and farmer Michael Hendricks peruse the leftover produce at the end of market to buy for Meals on Wheels seniors.
I wanted to share an inspiring, thoughtful partnership that is making a huge difference for those right in our backyard. The Farm-to-Table for Seniors in Need collaboration between Peachtree Road Farmers Market & Meals On Wheels Atlanta (MOWA) packs three incredible punches at once:

- Eliminates food waste
- Supports local farmers
- Provides local seniors in need with access to fresh vegetables

Currently, one in six Atlanta seniors struggles with hunger.

Through this young partnership, over 5,000 lbs fresh, locally grown produce have been supplied to Atlanta seniors. Each week Peachtree Road Farmers Market purchases around 150 lbs of unsold produce from their market vendors and sells to MOWA at a highly discounted rate. The program is the brainchild of Saltyard's Nick Leahy who is an advisory member of both MOWA and the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. Creative Loafing ran a piece about the program in October, but it still needs support to fulfill its potential! The market reopens April 1, 2017 and you can find out more about the market here.
