This is a very tough time for family farmers in Wisconsin…more than 600 farms went out of business in our state in 2018 alone. This is a huge loss for our communities.
Healthy, local, diversified family farms are key to our future. They steward our natural resources, strengthen the economy, and provide our communities with nutritious food.
In recognition of the importance of local farmers, we are inviting you to help us grow the Fondy Farm, which has not only been a lifesaver for family farms but also ensured a supply of affordable, fresh, locally grown produce to families in Milwaukee’s Northside neighborhoods – where the need is great.
This year we are expanding the farm from 30 to 40 acres and we are looking to you to help us make this happen. With this expanded acreage, we will be able to help more farmers and our existing farmers will be able to expand their production in order to meet the growing need for fresh, locally grown, nutritious food in the inner city. But we need your support to make this happen. To secure this land, prepare it for use by the farmers, and provide the technical assistance that is needed on these additional acres, we need to raise $20,000. Can you help us with a generous gift toward this project? Every donation counts and we deeply appreciate your support.
On behalf of the entire Board of Directors and small, but mighty team of staff members, thank you again for supporting the pioneering work of the Fondy Food Center!
Donations can be made through our secure online portal above or by mailing a check to Fondy Food Center, 1617 W North Ave #4, Milwaukee, WI 53205 You can also Donate Stock To Fondy
Thank you! It takes a village to build a better food system!
