The SFC Market Basket program includes 12 suppliers and the option to subscribe to a full share feeding four people or half share feeding two people and a choice to receive products weekly or biweekly during the program season. In addition to the base share, consumers can select several add on categories including but not limited to eggs, organic milk, meat varieties and coffee. SFC Local and Natural Farm to Table Coordinator, Abby McAllister, manages the partnerships and the program for the area. McAllister states, “Our hope is to provide healthy grocery options directly to consumers. We recognize limited grocery stores in Winchester and find it puzzling that we are also in one of the richest agricultural regions in the country. Our partnerships connect both produce and livestock farmers to provide access to healthy foods.”

SFC is expanding its reach by focusing on a consumer-friendly approach for food availability. In 2018, SFC offered a monthly seasonal food bazaar featuring area small producers and farmers on their property located at 3578 Valley Pike.
