Farm & Fork Society Fresh Produce and Turkey Drive

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 15 and therefore our weekly food donations to homeless shelter Isaiah House, Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges and Our Lady of Sorrows Food Pantry will end.

We are currently fundraising 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.

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.

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 

(Note produce will include a variety of squashes, potatoes, onions, root vegetables such as carrots, beets, parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, celery root and radishes, Jerusalem artichokes, green and red cabbage, and whatever greens left in the field such as arugula, broccoli raab or other mustard greens, kale, lettuce, and spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.)

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.

Thank you for your support.  Any questions, please email Melissa at
