More than $48,000 donated to the Emergency Farmer Fund
Posted on November 03, 2020 | General News
Our GoFundMe Emergency Farmer Fund campaign, in partnership with the FairShare CSA Coalition, closed on August 1st, 2020! Thanks to the generosity of 438 donors, more than $48,000 has been fundraised for our small farmers and food producers.
As of November 3rd, 2020, we have also officially disbursed all Emergency Farmer Funds. In total, 96 small farmer and food producer applicants received grants to aid their businesses and families during this time. Farmers have used this aid to pay land contracts and tractor payments, to launch home delivery services, to create online stores and websites, to pay for masks and cleaning supplies, to pay for essential medical bills and groceries, to make up for losses of income due to restaurant closures, among a myriad of other uses and needs. Our farmers are in awe of the generosity of our community.
Thank you for your generosity and your support!
