Farms to Families®

Home / About Us / Our Work / Farms to Families®

Our Farms to Families program ensures that people experiencing food insecurity have access to healthy, nutritious produce in their communities.

Working with our charity and funding partners, we provide a welcoming space in the form of a pop-up farmers’ market to provide free fresh produce – including vegetables, fruit and dairy products.

Each market can provide up to 300 families with enough fresh food for a week.

For people experiencing financial hardship or geographical isolation, fresh produce is a luxury. Reliance on cheap, energy-dense, nutrient-poor food leads to further inequity in already disadvantaged communities.

Our Farms to Families program aims to:

  • increase access to healthy, nutritious produce
  • provide an environment that fosters community connectivity and inclusion
  • help bridge the gap in perishable food relief programs
  • assist charities to expand their food relief reach and impact
  • support the Australian agriculture industry
  • contribute to a more sustainable environment by redirecting perishable food away from landfill.
The Farms to Families program relies on funding partners, volunteers, charity partners and food donors.

If you’re interested in supporting a Farms to Families market, please provide your details below and Carli Cook from our Corporate Partnerships team we will be in touch.
