Transition Sarasota as we tackle local food insecurity. Not knowing where your next meal is coming from is terrifying, choosing between health care that will improve your quality of life, or nutritious food is wrong.
We believe everyone deserves access to good food and we are helping our community have healthy food options no matter what life throws at them. We do this by organizing, volunteering and educating right here in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
In the process, we make our community stronger and more resilient. Building ties with our neighbors and supporting our local economy. Investing the money we earn here, right back into the local economy.
Read on below for how you can join us to create a sustainable and thriving community now, and for future generations.
