What do you do when there is plenty of food and lots of hungry people? You share! 

That’s what Donation Stations are all about. Farmer Foodshare volunteers run tables at Farmers Markets where farmers can donate local food for folks in need in their own area. Shoppers help, too. They may choose to donate fresh produce bought at the market or donate cash to buy food from the farmers. All this fresh, healthy food is then shared with local agencies serving neighbors in need. 

Donation Stations are located at Farmers Markets scattered throughout the state – and the idea continues to spread.

To become part of the Donation Station network, please contact info@farmerfoodshare.org.
