Your tax-deductible contribution to Alchemist CDC is vitally important to sustaining and expanding our programs. Fortunately, there are almost as many easy ways to donate as there are reasons to support us.
We make the most of all the resources we receive. Alchemist improves access to local and healthy food for thousands of low-income people. We have only a few employees and the dedication of our volunteers and interns to cover farmers markets, store tours, outreach and education.
We provide meaningful resources and programs for individuals, families and communities who seek affordable, healthy food and community spaces. Our programs, presentations and informative materials reach across Sacramento and Yolo counties and across cultures and economic sectors.
