Remember back at the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, when suddenly solidarity was palpable? In that magically challenging opening, a small group of neighbors agreed to work in solidarity to support the Abundancia Community Food Bank started by our friend Delia Jovel. Twelve families went in on wholesale food purchases for Abundancia, creating a produce buying club and donating some of the amount paid directly to Abundancia. Delia named us Caja Solidaria, the Solidarity Food Box. The produce buying club continued until February 2022 when we incorporated as a non-profit organization.
As a non-profit, we are able to work with and for people all across Henderson and Transylvania counties to create a vibrant mutual aid network focused on food.
