The Suncoast Food Alliance is a unique endeavor to satisfy the demand for locally-grown products in West Central Florida. As a marketing and distribution company of locally grown products, the Suncoast Food Alliance is bridging the divide between farmers and food establishments to meet the local demand for fresh items.
Some of the local farmers we are proud to work with include: Bear Wolf Ranch, King Family Farm, Bob’s Veggie Patch, Mitchell’s Natural Produce, Dancing Goat, Nature Delivered Farm and Hunsader Farms.
Get Fresher, More Nutritious Foods
Our goal is to deliver locally grown fruits and vegetables within 24 hours of harvest. Produce picked at the height of freshness tastes better and is more nutritionally complete.
Encourage a Self-Sufficient Community
A community that produces its own food enables people to influence how their food is grown. In addition, it reduces reliance on far-off food producers and stabilizes our food supply.
Help Preserve Biodiversity
Farmers who sell locally are not limited to the few varieties that are bred for long distance shipping, high yields, and shelf life. Often they raise and sell wonderful heirloom varieties that may be hard to find in supermarkets.
Help the Environment
By consuming locally produced foods, you reduce energy consumption and decrease your carbon footprint. Because locally produced foods do not require significant transportation or storage, both of which are very energy-intensive and pollute the air and water, you help the environment whenever you buy or eat locally.
Improve Local Economic Health
Buying locally grown foods keeps money within the community. This contributes to the health of all sectors of the local economy and increases the local quality of life.
