“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Jacksonville Fresh is a non-profit organization with the goal of providing Northeast Florida & St. Mary’s, Georgia with the most convenient, economical and environmentally friendly access to the most healthy and fresh local goods.
Jacksonville Fresh was founded in January 2019 by Glenn Bourquin. Glenn is a graduate from University of North Florida with a Masters in Business Administration. He has a passion for healthy living and nutrition. His wife, Jessie, is a Registered Nurse at Baptist Medical Center and helps with social media, order processing and customer service. They live in Fernandina Beach, Florida with their two children and their dog, Belle. In their free time they enjoy going to the beach, surfing, gardening, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
How We Started
In 2017, Jessie was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition that affected her ability to walk. Refusing to give up her career and ability to live a normal life, she followed a plant based diet for a year and went into remission. Our family learned in that season how important it is to have access to fresh fruits and vegetables and discovered a deeper appreciation for local farmers who pour so much into what they do day in and day out in order to put those items on our tables.
Jacksonville Fresh was founded with a vision to provide our community with easy access to locally grown produce while also supporting our amazing local farmers.
Thank you for being a part of this mission!
