Freshest Cargo’s mission is to create long-term change in local food systems by increasing access to fresh, affordable, and local fruits and vegetables in underserved communities. We serve communities of all ages, ethnicities, and income levels with 100% California grown produce, sourced entirely from small farms within 200 miles of the Bay Area.

By partnering with local health clinics, businesses, city governments, churches, and community centers, we are able to deliver healthy, local food to the places people naturally gather, while honoring each community’s local culture.

We believe that everyone should have equal access to healthy foods, and that the health of our communities and the livelihood of our local farmers should go hand-in-hand.
