Local Farm – Food Bank Donation

Most of you know that Klesick Farms loves to participate in doing good. Working with our local food banks is a core value at Klesick’s. One of the great things about our food bank program is that we are impacting local needs and often with local farm produce. Recently, I was visiting with another local organic farmer who happened to have their produce stored at a local community warehouse – right place, but at the wrong time. A conventional farmer was also using the storage facility to house their “treated” potatoes and ended up cross-contaminating my friend’s crop. There are strict Organic rules about cross-contamination, and while the good news is that the food is still edible, the bad news is that it can no longer be sold as Certified Organic. And to organic farmers like ourselves, this is a big deal. I would like to help them realize some revenue from this unfortunate situation.

The Plan: I would like to help my friend by offering a 40lb box of produce at $24 to be delivered to our local food banks. If you would like to partner with us, please click on This Link and add the Local Farm Foodbank box ($24) to your next delivery. Our team will handle all the details and get the produced delivered to one of our 12 local food banks we sponsor. As always, your Foodbank donation is tax-deductible.

Thank you in advance for investing in a local organic farm and supporting our local food bank system and the families they serve.
