Monthly Giving

Become a Foodwise Cultivator

Join a group of committed supporters who believe in the importance of local farms and food access at this critical time. By making a monthly gift to Foodwise, you ensure that local farms thrive and families in your community have access to fresh, healthy food for years to come.

For nearly 30 years, you have been here with Foodwise (formerly CUESA), growing thriving communities through the power and joy of local food. Since the pandemic, Foodwise farmers markets have remained critical lifelines for small family farms and Bay Area families, as CalFresh (food stamp) usage has more than doubled and families need help putting healthy food on the table. You understand the critical importance of farmers markets in supporting resilient local food systems, connected communities, and fresh food access for all.

By joining our core group of monthly supporters, you are investing in a regenerative, equitable, and delicious food future for everyone.

“I support Foodwise because I love their youth education programs. It’s super important for kids to get introduced to healthy, fresh, local food, and Foodwise provides this experience for lots of kids who wouldn’t have it otherwise. Plus, I know firsthand that they have an awesome time doing it! Also, Foodwise manages two of my favorite farmers markets, and I can’t imagine living without them. I know they’ve had to cancel their regular fundraising events, so our support is more crucial than ever.”
