Our Mission

"Connecting Art, Agriculture, Food and Community"

Art to Feed believes that  agriculture and  art can help "feed" the needs our unique  community in the central valley of California. Art and farming have at its core the fundamental principles that enable healthier lifestyle, happiness and a sense of respect towards community,  people and land. Helping to nourish and protect  the needs of our community will lead to a sustainable future we all  can be proud to share with future generations.

What We Do

  • We donate paintings as auction items in support of local causes that share in our philosophy.
  • We donate 20% of proceeds from art work sold online to individual's local food bank.
  • We donate 20% of proceeds from purchased art work at our local events towards supporting farmers directly. We buy their produce at local farmers markets and then bring to those in need at the Modesto Gospel Mission.
  • We strive to encourage others to create, nourish and give through our blog stories and recipes at "The Art to Feed"
  • We offer community outreach through collaborative paintings , entitled "Community Hearts." Each painting is done with the public at local events to raise awareness for a cause. The painting is then finished by Amie and donated to the cause as a symbol of the communities love and support.
