For seven years Tri Cycle Farms has be growing its gardens and programs to fulfill the organization's vision of a world with food security, sovereignty and sustainability for all. Through a partnership with Whole Foods, their food recovery program has been able to divert tens of thousands of pounds of food each year from the landfill and help hundreds of families each week by getting wholesome, highly nutritious food into hungry bellies.
In fact, at the halfway point of 2018, Tri Cycle Farms had already harvested, recovered and shared over 60,000 pounds of high-quality, nutritious food with those who would otherwise not have access to it. That said, the Tri Cyclist's are looking to take their efforts to the next level and purchase or find a truck that can pull a brand new trailer they received with support from Fayetteville Roots Festival, Specialized Real Estate, and Whole Cities Foundation.
The request from Don Bennett, founder of Tri Cycle Farms:
"Isn't this an awesome trailer? Isn't she beautiful? I'm sure you've heard what the problem is though. No? Well... we don't have a truck capable of pulling over ton of food per week in this baby. Yep. You understand now. We're a cart before the horse organization. Here's what you can do to help right now and it's as simple as 1,2,3!

From a fellow Tri Cyclist:
"Hey you guys!!! Please consider helping my friend Don. You know anyone who has a truck to give? Every day he and several faithful volunteers pack their cars to the gills, with tons of leftover food from our local Whole Foods, then distribute it to those in need. Not only is this a laborious task, but it's quite tough on the vehicles too! A truck is meant for this line of work, and more so- it can pull the huge trailer that was donated to them! With the trailer, they can more than triple their efforts. The only thing holding them back is something to pull it with. So, if you know someone who can help, give me or Don a shout!" - Zac Trout
