Alaska Tilth gathers a community of organizational collaborators to serve the most food insecure members of the community, and develop regional food resilience. To achieve this goal, we work with a number of nonprofits and stakeholders. To date, we have distributed over 4,300 pounds of fresh produce as well as nutritional information to over 700 participants in the region.
Alaska Tilth serves the food insecure at My House, a resource center for homeless youth, the Wasilla Women’s Shelter, the Wasilla Food Bank, and Senior Centers in both Palmer and Wasilla.
Alaska Tilth brings together community resources and stakeholders at Alaska Pacific University, UAF Experimental Farm, Cooperative Extension’s SNAP Program, Department of Agriculture’s Plant Material Center, and the Alaska Farmland Trust.
Alaska Tilth educates new growers, bolstering the dwindling number of farmers in State, and encourages them to be a part of breaking our reliance on imported food.
