Evening Meals at School
Curating a totally of 59 different Evening Meal events, we’ve served over 11,000 plates of locally sourced, volunteer prepared, deliciousness, all at one accessible price: pay what you can. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have suspended these gatherings, but we look forward to the day we can continue with this beautiful tradition.

L.I.F.E Garden Program
In collaboration with the S&S Farms and Lopez Community Land Trust, the Lopez Locavores have played a fundamental role in the development and growth of the Lopez Island Farm Education Garden Program which now forms part of the Lopez Island School District’s curriculum.
Lopez Fresh Soup
Donating time and resources, the Lopez Locavores have cooked more than 1700 quarts of homemade organic soup that is then distributed through the Lopez Fresh, a Lopez Island Family Resource Center initiative.
Gleaned Fruit Processsing
Every season we collaborate with the Lopez Island Family Resource Center to cook and dry their gleaned fruit into things like apple and pear sauce, fruit leathers and chips, that are later distributed through Lopez Fresh.
For years Lopez Fresh, our local Food Bank, has received fresh vegetables and fruit from anyone willing to donate them. Due to COVID-19, this had to be discontinued, which led to the birth of our newest initiative, Grow-A-Row; a call to action for home gardeners to share their abundance.
Supporting Local Economy
Being a farmer starts before the sun rises and ends often times well after sunset. If you are trying to promote your small farm, you aren’t outside farming, which is why we created an entire directory of all our local farms. To help promote and connect them to our island community.
