Twin Villages Foodbank Farm

Twin Villages Foodbank Farm (TVFF) is a community-based farm that grew 45,000 pounds of food in 2021 and collected close to 30,000 pounds from other sources to distribute in Lincoln County, Maine. Our goal is to involve the community through volunteer and student engagement, as we grow as much food as possible for our neighbors who need it most. We provide food to seven food pantries and several youth programs across the county. The farm grows 12 crops, focusing on more storage crops every season to extend our reach further into the winter months. As a non-profit farm, we wear many hats to manage every day planting and harvesting, the Food Storage Hub, community volunteer participation, and community outreach. As the farm grows over the next few seasons, we see many opportunities for staff to grow into new and expanding roles.
