Holiday Food Drive - Help us provide fresh produce for our local food pantries for the holiday season.

Farm & Fork Society feels strongly about helping out our community and providing food to those who are less fortunate than our members. During our regular season, we support the campaign Generation Zero: Working to Reduce Hunger in New Jersey a program that provides fresh produce from our farmers directly to local food banks. Sadly our season is ending November 14 and therefore our weekly food donations to local food pantries will end.

We are currently starting our 
HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE to purchase both turkeys and storage produce such as potatoes, squashes, and onions that can last throughout the holiday season for our not-for-profit partners: Isaiah HouseInterfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges and Our Lady of Sorrows Food Pantry.

As you know our food drives are always two-pronged: 
  1. Purchase fresh produce for those in need; Essex County has the highest rate of food scarcity in the state with over 114,000 people.
  2. Help out our local farmer partners. We want them to finish out the season with enough money in the bank to pay the bills in the winter months. This year has been a particularly hard season for local farmers due to lack of sunshine and an abundance of rain.

For those who are new to Farm & Farm Society, you can read more detail about our past fundraisers here and more detail about what we do here.
No donation is too small.  Some ideas below.

$10 = 6 lbs of produce

$25 = 15 pounds of produce

$50 = 22-24 pound turkey

$100 = 60 pounds of produce 
Please use the button below to donate via PayPal. Please note that we are not a registered non-profit therefore your donation is not tax deductible. All money raised will go to purchase turkeys and fresh produce at wholesale prices from Circle Brook Farm, Breezy Hill Orchard, and Goffle Farm.

Another way to donate is to purchase an I 🍎 Local Farmers. Link on left hand side of this website.
