In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, schools, after school programs and farmers’ markets are closed in Palm Beach County. Children who depend on food assistance programs are going without, while local farmers have crops waiting to be harvested. During this challenge with the spread of COVID-19, we see our community connecting in a new way. We are bigger together!

Introducing Farm to Family.
Farm to Family is a network of local farmers and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. Together we will help nourish hungry families while keeping floundering small farm businesses afloat. We want to keep our children and families healthy, and our farms and farmers too during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
Let’s connect the dots. Together you can end hunger and save small farmers in one heroic good deed.
1. Our local farmers will box up their best assortment of ripe and ready-for-picking vegetables and fruits our kids and families will eat.
2. Each $30 box contains a mixed bag of lettuces and salads, up to 4 veggies, up to 3 fruits.
3. Your $30 funds the produce for $20 and the delivery for $10.
4. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County will hand-out food to our neediest families at multiple locations throughout Palm Beach, through paid staff members families know and trust.
Partners in this organic effort to save the day are: Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, Lox Farms, Fresh RX, Living Hungry, Farm to Share, Aioli, Gratitude Gardens, Kai Kai Farms, Holman’s Harvest, Florida Crystals, GL Homes, Old School Bakery, Farm Share, TKM, Tropical Shipping, Gekks, V and B Farms, All American Citrus, Lake Meadow, Brown Distributing, Sysco, GFA International, Dynatech International and more are signing on daily.
By you helping to create this food distribution network we will also be able to distribute other items of need including: dry goods, dairy and protein as donated by community partners.
