- FARM TO FAMILY FUND -
Farm to Family Fund, Inc., is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that believes all households should have access to sustainably grown, healthful food. To help make this possible, we manage two programs to make food more available to low-income households: the Farm to Family Fund and the SNAP Matching Program. The Farm to Family Fund is committed to supporting the local food system and helping to get healthful food to those in need.
The Farm to Family Fund is designed both to make healthful, sustainably produced food more available to low-income households and to support our local, sustainable food system, especially our farmers who take the risk of producing food during the winter months. At the close of Bloomington farmers’ markets, we purchase produce, eggs, and dairy that farmers wish to sell at half price. This food is donated to The Rise, the Community Kitchen of Monroe County, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, and Hoosier Hills Food Bank.
The Farm to Family Fund also manages the winter market SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) matching funds.
