Current Status: Active
Year Founded: 2010
Summary of Activities: Transition Sarasota partners with local organizations to advance our vision of building a thriving local community both now and for future generations. We have built a considerable network of individuals who share and support our mission to focus on strengthening our local food infrastructure and relieve food insecurity.
Summary of Accomplishments: Transition Sarasota has rescued and donated over 300,000 pounds of fresh Florida produce from area farms, much of it organic, to serve the hungry in our local community as a part of our Suncoast Gleaning Project initiative. Each year, we mobilize thousands of participants and dozens of community partners to take an active part in our local food economy with our Eat Local Week Sarasota initiative.
