VashonFresh.com wants to demonstrate that on-line food ordering can benefit Vashon farmers and residents not just giant corporations like Amazon and Safeway. Vashon Fresh is a project of The Vashon Island Growers Association (VIGA) whose mission is to promote farming, access to healthy food, and a sustainable agricultural economy. Funding for Vashon Fresh comes from the King Conservation District’s Regional Food Systems Grant program with additional support from the University of Washington and Seattle Tilth.
