About the Foundation

The Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation was incorporated in March 2013 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Headquartered in Camden, Delaware, the Foundation was created to build awareness, understanding and positive public perception about Delaware’s farm operations, promote fresh local food and sponsor the Ag Education Mobile Classroom. The foundation partners with the New Castle, Kent and Sussex County Farm Bureaus to raise the funds necessary to successfully achieve the mission and provide education materials and feed the hungry.
