The Delaware Farm Bureau Women’s Committee participates in various programs including Food Check-Out Day, Wreaths Across America and Ronald McDonald House Charities just to name a few! The committee also manages the Delaware Farm Bureau Food Booth at the Delaware State Fair! Proceeds benefit our annual scholarships program, and our other projects.
Food Checkout Day marks the time of the year when Americans will have earned enough disposable income to pay for groceries for a family of four, for the rest of the year.
Every year, the Delaware Farm Bureau Women’s Committee purchases groceries from Sam’s Club, located in Dover, DE, and stocks the cupboards at the Ronald McDonald room in Bayhealth Medical Center.
Women’s Committee donation to Ronald McDonald Room at Bayhealth Kent General Hospital.
The donation allows families with patients in the NICU at Kent General Hospital to have a snack or quick mean while staying close to their loved ones.
The Delaware Farm Bureau Women’s Committee is proud to participate in the Ronald McDonald House Christmas Workshop! By donating toys to the Ronald McDonald House, we are giving children, and their siblings who are staying there, a chance to have a wonderful Christmas!
Each year the Delaware Farm Bureau Women’s Committee awards scholarships to students in the agricultural and non-agricultural field. The State Women’s Committee awards a $2,500 scholarship and each County Women’s Committee awards a $1,000 scholarship.
The submission deadline has passed and we are no longer accepting scholarship applications. Check back in March 2024 for scholarship opportunities.
