Loveland’s Blooms & Berries Farm Market donated 2,000 pounds of farm-ripe tomatoes to the Freestore Foodbank.

Most of the donation was financed directly by Blooms & Berries Farm, but customers of its farm and produce road stands were also encouraged to purchase 10-pound boxes of tomatoes to send to the food bank.

“Families with limited resources are often forced to purchase low-cost foods that are loaded with calories but have little to no nutritional value,” Reiber said. “We greatly appreciate the support of Blooms & Berries Farm Market as we work to provide food that promotes good health among the people we serve.”
