Growing a Resilient Local Food Economy
Sib Pab Eggroll & Platter Sale
Due to the success of our first eggroll sale and to further support our Sib Pab meal delivery program, we are hosting our second eggroll sale! This time, we have frozen and ready-to-eat eggrolls available and meal platters inspired by the meals we serve in the Sib Pab Program.
Rotary club donation drive
The Rotary Club of Greater Portage County and Farmshed are aiming to sell 120 quarts of chili. Monies from this event will be utilized as part of a matching Rotary grant to fund a portion of a solar project at a Portage County non-profit.
Local Food For All Summer 2021 Campaign
The Wisconsin growing season is in full swing, and we are eagerly awaiting the summer harvest to begin. We need your help this growing season. With your support we will purchase not just local produce to be used fresh, but also to be processed by our amazing volunteers to be stored so Farmshed can provide local produce to our partners even in the winter months. Your summer campaign donation helps us secure local produce at its peak ripeness so our partner programs participants receive the highest quality produce. Our Farmers are busy and with your help we will be too!
Farmshed has built partnerships that incorporate locally grown products into existing food assistance programs, including:
Mobile Pantry of Portage County, Farmshed ensures rural residents of Portage County receive locally sourced food assistance.
CAP’s Hmong UPLIFT Program, ensuring Hmong elders and disabled residents have access to culturally appropriate meals with locally sourced food.
Salvation Army Hope Center Meal Program, ensuring shelter residents and community members have healthy meals.
Your donation will help Farmshed continue to grow its programs and provide our community with healthy locally grown food, while supporting our famers.

Farmshed's Commitment to an Inclusive Local Food Community
Access to healthy local food is important, but alone it is not enough. We see this as an opportunity to be challenged to realize the inclusive community of farmers, entrepreneurs, businesses, and impassioned eaters that is essential to becoming a resilient local food community. We are looking forward to discussing your commitment, your ideas, and your questions.
