Transforming our food system for health, sustainability, economy and security
We work in many different ways to build a vibrant food system on Aquidneck Island: distribution of fresh foods at our farmers markets, education in school and community gardens, programs that inspire young people to love healthy foods, and an annual challenge to eat locally to benefit community health and our regional economy.
Aquidneck Community Table, or "ACT," also aims to bring together all partners in our community to collectively build a healthy future, generating events and discussion to explore solutions that strengthen the island’s food system, support the local economy and expand access to fresh healthy food for everyone - and to act directly to grow more food, preserve open space, and teach life skills.
Aquidneck Community Table is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We were honored to receive Edible Rhody’s "Food Related Nonprofit Local Hero Award" in 2019.
