Real Food Farm works toward a just and sustainable food system by improving neighborhood access to healthy food, providing experience-based education, and developing an economically viable, environmentally responsible local agriculture sector. We improve food access in northeast Baltimore by using a Mobile Market to sell fresh fruit and vegetables and offering a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Real Food Farm also provides field trips, summer programs, and internships for students and farming training opportunities for adults. Since 2009, Real Food Farm has grown over 60,000 lbs of food and educated over 3,000 people.

Harper - AmeriCorps member, 2022

“My time as an AmeriCorps member has been invaluable to me. Not only have I gotten to connect with my neighbors through service, I have grown tremendously both personally and professionally. I floundered for a while before I came to Real Food Farm, and they helped me get back on a path that was right for me.”

Myeasha – AmeriCorps member, 2013

“I didn’t join AmeriCorps because I wanted to be a farmer, I joined because I wanted to help others. Through my experience I grew passionate about nutrition and getting fresh food to people who never had produce grown without chemicals. I wanted to teach youth what I didn’t learn so that they knew how to read a nutrition label way before they became adults.”
