Farms for Life partners with community agencies to provide fresh, healthy produce to the clients they serve. For some low-income and homeless families, access to local, farm fresh produce is out of reach. Through our generous supporters and our community partnerships we are able to provide them with access to fresh produce and a healthy future. Our partner agencies are committed to helping achieve our mission and to creating healthy communities.
