Why donate?

We make the most of all the resources we receive. Alchemist improves access to local and healthy food for thousands of low-income people, empowers under-resourced food entrepreneurs, and empowers neighborhoods to pursue grassroots solutions for food access and park creation. We have only a few employees and the dedication of our volunteers and interns to do a great deal of important work.

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.
