The Local Food Fundraiser is an alternative school fundraiser. Students raise money for their school selling local food products.  This program raises awareness of local food, supports local producers, and educates families on local food systems. The fundraiser was launched in 2010 by a group of Farmshed volunteers, it is now in its 7th year with 9 participating schools.


We Believe: 1) Food should be grown in a sustainable manner 2) People should know how to buy, grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare local foods 3) The public should know local farmers 4) Farmers should know who eats their food


Your membership supports our community programming as well as our production greenhouse, community kitchen, gathering space, and learning center.
