Every month, we donate .5% of our Wednesday sales to an organization nominated and voted on by our member-owners.
That organization is also invited to come into Rising Tide and present information and takeaways for the public to be educated and aware of this organization’s efforts within our community.  We invite you to come in and shop on Wednesday to support these amazing communities and wonderful non-profit organizations.

May’s Co-op for Community Partner is Veggies to Table

1 in 7 Mainers do not have enough food on their tables daily and 43% of Maine students require school meals each day — the goal to end hunger is vital.

It all started with a move from Paris to Maine, some land, a need, and a lot of hard work. Veggies to Table is the result of a dream and idea based on the unfortunate reality of food insecurity in our Maine community today.

Veggies to Table’s mission is to grow top-quality organic produce and flowers to donate to local people experiencing food insecurity, create lasting community connections through our volunteer program, and provide education around healthy food and sustainable living. 

WHAT THEY ACHIEVED IN 2021

  • Donated over 16,000+ pounds (13,333 meals) of organic produce to over 30 organizations and partners

  • Donated 1300+ bouquets of flowers

  • Expanded our no-till grow space and continued to grow over 100 kinds of fruits, vegetables, and flowers and over 200 specific varieties

  • Built our cold storage unit

  • Welcomed over 65 unique volunteers, interns, and Wwoofers safely onto the farm who worked thousands of hours

  • Completed our first ever successful flower CSA
