FARMS 2 FOOD SHELF PROGRAM

Initially funded by a Sourcewell grants starting in 2021, 2024 is now in its third growing season.  The objective of this program is to provide low-income families with the most nutrient-rich, fresh produce possible, while economically supporting local growers/farmers. The food is currently utilized by Pine River-Backus Family Center's Food Shelf and CommUnity meals in Pine River, and the Lakes Area Food Shelf in Pequot Lakes.

Moving households from food insecurity to nutrition security is a key objective for this program as good nutrition is key to learning, health, stable relationships and more.
