Our humble beginnings start in the heart of Tuskegee, Alabama through the vision of Dr. George Washington Carver; who assisted small rural farmers through his mobile produce cart, "The Jesup Agricultural Wagon". In Spring 2013, Tuskegee University alumnae and Carver's Produce® founder, Yasmeen Salaam, sought to turn Carver's vision into a plan of action for food desert communities.
We understand access to healthy foods creates healthier bodies; helping to curb growing rates of obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. It's not about creating a temporary diet, we're empowering communities to create a sustainable lifestyle !
Carver’s Produce® expands the tradition of George W. Carver, by connecting small farmers to new distribution channels within food desert communities. Our distribution model gives small producers the space to expand production and increase our food economy.
