Delaware Farm to Community
Delaware Farm Bureau, in partnership with the Delaware Council on Farm & Food Policy (subset of the Department of Agriculture), is looking for participants for the Farm to Community Pilot Program.
This program is an expansion of the Delaware Farm to School Program, which has had success across Delaware’s 19 school districts for more than 20 years. The program will connect Delaware farmers with community-based organizations to procure and supply products which will be distributed to Delaware families in need.
The Community Outlets
Farmers will be able to market and sell fresh products grown in Delaware through new market outlets that distribute to local community members.
The two community outlets are the Lutheran Community Services’ Delaware Food Farmacy Program and the Historic Lewes Farmers Market’s Food Pantry Purchase Program.
Farmers and producers
supplying product through the
Farm to Community Pilot Program should:
- Have the capacity to supply at least $150 – $500 worth of product per week
- Have the capacity to supply product for at least 12 weeks between the months of April to December
- Produce, all or in part, the product that is supplied
(may aggregate from other producers, but part of aggregation must include your own product)
