Join over 200 local farms, 12 farmers markets and 18 recipient agencies as we challenge our community to help us “Help the farmers. Help the hungry - All year long.” by creating a reserve fund for the winter at the Seventh Annual Farmer Foodshare Challenge.

About the Challenge

This year’s challenge is to “Help the Farmers. Help the Hungry.” by raising $5,000. Each participating farmers market Donation Station will have a goal to reach, and those funds will then stay with that market to ensure that they have enough money to continue purchasing fresh local produce to donate to recipient agencies throughout the winter.

How You  Can Help

Donate cash at your Farmers’ Market, buy a raffle ticket here, or simply make a donation online.

Kids Activities - Last Week of June

Each market’s Donation Station will have a kids’ area and art supplies for children to engage with the concepts of fresh food and have fun. 

Help the farmer. Help the Hungry - All year long.

From June 22th to July 21st – At your local farmers market

Join local farmers markets and  social services agencies to raise  funds to create a $5000 winter buying reserve for fresh local food. 

Raffle Tickets
