Creating access

to healthy and culturally appropriate 

food for everyone 


Valley Verde is a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization, which promotes healthy eating and provides food access and micro-entrepreneurship training to low-income families of San José and Gilroy. 


Our mission

Valley Verde increases self-sufficiency, health, and resilience, through a culturally informed community based food system to promote food justice.

What we envision
We envision a Silicon Valley that has reconnected to its agricultural roots and resources, where there is food access and a healthy lifestyle for all.

Food Sovereignty
Valley Verde's work is guided by the principles of food sovereignty, where local communities form a just and participatory food system that honors the relationship between the people and the land, builds generational knowledge and skills, recognizes food as sacred and a right for all.
