Nonprofit food box service expands sustainable, organic options for households in El Paso and Southern New Mexico
For eight years the Desert Spoon Food Hub has been focused on making it easier to bring locally sourced organic food to family tables El Paso and Las Cruces. The nonprofit organization delivers weekly farm boxes with 100% organic produce that is grown by local farmers. “Our main purpose why we made this non-profit was to support local farmers and give the community access to healthy organic foods,” said Patsy Terrazas-Stallworth, Co-founder of Desert Food Spoon Hub. Terrazas-Stallworth and her daughters Adriana Clowe and Vanessa Brady started Desert Spoon Food Hub in 2014. The family-run nonprofit’s founders believe it’s crucial to recognize the range of food experiences from how it’s grown to how it gets to consumers’s kitchens and tables.
