Making Local Food Accessible

July 26 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

FREE

Come join farmers Dan Cunningham and Lizzie Meier at Folklore Farm in Cherryfield for a discussion on the ways their farm supports access to local food to all income levels, especially in a rural area. Folklore Farm partners with the Maine Seacoast Mission’s Downeast Campus Food Pantry, Mainers Feeding Mainers and the Good Shepherd Food Bank of Maine to prioritize food distribution to low income community members. The farm’s collaboration with the Mission enables distribution to take place at local schools, summer camps, the Mission’s food pantry and right to some community member’s residences.

REGISTER HERE.

MOFGA’s Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops are designed for apprentices, Journeypeople, farmworkers and other beginning farmers. They follow an informal format including a farm tour and conversation on the topic of the day. For details or directions to workshops, call (207) 568-4142, email [email protected].
