Life in a Food Desert: Marilea’s Thrive Market Story

February 19, 2016

Thrive Gives member Marilea has been a fan “from the very beginning.”

Living on a secluded property in the high desert of central California, she doesn’t have many options when it comes to shopping for groceries. And when she’s shopping for organic, non-GMO, or Paleo foods? The selection becomes even more narrow.

Now Marilea can order her favorite wholesome foods and products and have them delivered directly to her door in just a few days—and she doesn’t need to worry about driving in dangerous conditions for hours to get what she needs. From Paleo-friendly baking supplies to grain-free pet food, we’ve got her covered, and at a fraction of the price you’ll find at health food stores.

Want to help a Thrive Gives member like Marilea? When you donate a few dollars to our “Spread the Health” initiative at checkout, that money goes directly to help a Thrive Gives family, so they can purchase healthy groceries. Interested in learning more about what we’re doing to help make wholesome food accessible to all? Check out our Giving page.
