FOUGHT FOOD INSECURITY IN 2016. WITH THE FREE MARKET, WE ARE FIGHTING BACK.


The Free Market rescues, recycles, and distributes perishable and non-perishable food to those facing food insecurity. By working to reduce food waste, we've found a natural win-win solution to help solve food insecurity facing families and individuals nationwide.

OUR PROGRAM:


FOOD RESCUE


We work with businesses and individuals to identify food that would otherwise be thrown away.

DISTRIBUTION


Food that is donated or rescued will be readily available, including meals served on site!

PRODUCTION


The next step in our evolution is to launch an organic, aquaponic, food production program.

FOOD PRODUCTION & AQUAPONICS

Living Legacy Institute and the Free Market’s next project is launching our aquaponic food production program.

Recent advances in aquaponic technology mean we can now produce 100% organic, non-GMO food with less water, energy, labor, and carbon than conventional farming.

This new technology will help us provide sustainable, healthy, organic food for at-risk individuals facing food insecurity.


5x more productive than traditional farming

Food production any time of year

80% less power usage

Plants grow 50% faster

NO Pesticides, harsh chemicals, antibiotics or hormones


HOW DOES AQUAPONICS WORK?

Aquaponics is a closed-loop system in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic animals supplies the essential nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn purify the water.
