Earlier this year Andrew Sigal launched FoodPool, an innovative concept for strengthening and stabilizing neighborhoods while feeding people clean, fresh food in communities of all sizes.
As a new and as of yet unincorporated non-profit, Food Pool’s mission is to create small, local groups to gather backyard garden produce and deliver it to food banks and food pantries. These “FoodPools” are modeled on carpools – neighborhood based, easy to set up, and easy to run. “By creating numerous small, local groups,” the Food Pool website states, “we feed our neighbors while strengthening our communities.”
Food Pool offers a free Guide to Starting a FoodPool in their FoodPool starter kit.
How wonderful that they’ve created a concept that they are willing to share and that their technical expertise is available.
