Nonprofits Doing Good: Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture

This month we want to feature one of our customers doing good, Arcadia!

Arcadia is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a more equitable and sustainable local food system in the Washington, DC area!

Based on the historic grounds of Woodlawn Estate in Alexandria, Virginia, and thanks to a landmark partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Arcadia manages four distinct program areas that address a specific need in the community, while collectively engaging consumers, farmers, schools, and institutions.

They also have a Mobile Market, a Veteran Farming Program, and a Farm to school program! Here are some videos that explain these programs:

COVID-19 has impacted nonprofits all over the world. Arcadia decided to give everyone an update about what they’re doing in light of the pandemic:
