About Farmers Against Hunger:
History: Farmers Against Hunger (FAH) was started in 1996 as a way to enable farmers throughout New Jersey to contribute their extra produce to those in need. Prior to the development of Farmers Against Hunger a few farmers tried to donate produce to their local food bank or food pantries, but transportation was always a problem. When farmers are in the midst of growing and harvesting, there is little time to have employees truck produce to a non-paying destination. And, for the most part, the food banks or pantries did not have vans, trucks or drivers to go and get the produce at a moment’s notice. With the financial support of the Bonner Foundation to purchase our first truck, Farmers Against Hunger was founded.
Today: Farmers continue to lead Farmers Against Hunger. Farmers serve on our board and provide an active role in gleanings, outreach, truck repairs, fundraising, and many other aspects of FAH. After long hours of plowing their fields and managing their businesses, they attend board meetings and offer additional assistance to make sure FAH is as successful today as their original vision.
Our Mission is to preserve and enhance agriculture, farming and related activities and businesses in New Jersey through educational, informational and promotional programs.
