Food Safety 101

It's easy to forget about the importance of food safety when you bring home a bag brimming with fresh, local, beautiful veggies. But food safety should always be a priority for you and your family. We do our best to ensure the utmost safety and cleanliness of our food, but there are always risks involved with transporting food from one location to another. With GoFarm, we keep delivery logistics simple, with food touching as few hands as possible before getting to your plate. But even still, our food travels from the fields > to the delivery van > to our shipping container > to your re-usable bags > to your kitchen. We check the food upon delivery, keep it cool, and wash our hands thoroughly before touching any food. But there's more you can do at home to make sure your food stays clean! Here is some information about how to stay safe at home with ALL of your produce items, no matter where they come from.

GoFarm works to strengthen the local food system and build healthier communities. Through our three program areas (Farmer Assistance, Local Food Share, and Community Access) we support local, beginning, farmers, train/mentor aspiring farmers, and make healthy food more affordable and accessible to the community.

Through our Local Food Share program, community members sign up for a season of local, sustainable produce, and get to learn all about the food and the farmers throughout the growing season. You can sign up for the Local Food Share here.
