 OfferingOur March Share the Plate is The Sharing Locker’s Farmer’s Market. For four years now The Sharing locker has partnered with West Bay Community Action, URI’s S.N.A.P. /food assistance outreach, and West Bay Farm to provide farm-fresh produce four months of the year to our Sharing Locker Clients, many of whom may lack access to fresh, healthy produce. Due to the pandemic, the senior/disabled $15 vouchers, a vital piece of this effort were curtailed. We are looking to close the gap to continue the Farmer’s Market effort in this upcoming season.
