Rebuilding Our Food System One Farm At A Time

We believe the future health and vibrancy of our community is dependent on the sustainability of our local farms, the ones tucked away in our landscape protecting our environment and feeding our families. Desert Spoon is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit food hub serving a crucial, but often invisible, part of the local food system. We ensure all entities along the supply chain, from farmers and farmworkers to consumers, benefit from our food systems model.

Helping Our Friends at Valhalla Orchards

Taking a leap of faith in 2014, Valhalla Orchards planted over 500 peach trees in Arrey, New Mexico creating a little piece of heaven in the desert. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Valhalla Orchards is required to restrict U-Pick operations from Texas residents but we can still support them! Pre-order your peaches and we will have them ready for pick-up at our El Paso warehouse, located at 1714 Yandell on Fridays between 11-1:00 pm!

 OPEN TO EVERYONE, does not require a farm box subscription to purchase.

The Food Project’s approach to hunger and healthy food access is what makes it unique. The program is deeply rooted in both sides of our food system, helping small farmers sustain their livelihoods and making access to fresh fruits and vegetables attainable for all. The Food Project is designed to benefit those on both sides. Donations from community members like you will help provide fresh fruits and vegetables to those in need, while supporting small family farms during these uncertain times.

The Food Project currently provides 168 families access to fresh fruits and vegetables residing in El Segundo Barrio community, Central El Paso and Sunland Park, New Mexico through a referral program in partnership with Centro De Salud Familiar La Fe, Cuidad Nueva and La Clinica de Familia.
