Locally Driven Food Drive – help reduce food insecurity this holiday season with local food from seacoast farms

This holiday season, make a donation to help seacoast farmers share the harvest with neighbors in need!

Participating Seacoast Farms have pledged to match produce in-kind for all all funds raised.

This means that every dollar raised goes directly to a local farmer, who in-turn will donate TWICE that value in fresh, healthy produce to a local food pantry.

Seacoast Eat Local will collect the produce at the Winter Farmers’ Market in Rollinsford on December 21, and the Rollinsford Police Benevolent Association. will be assembling Holiday Gift Baskets. The Rollinsford Police Benevolent Association works with numerous local charities, including Seeds of Faith Food Pantry and the Rollinsford-Somersworth Food Pantry.

Many participating farms are already donating high quality produce to local food pantries and soup kitchens. This fundraiser provides a direct way of giving something back to the farms for the good hard work that is already happening…and providing incentive for EVEN MORE fresh, healthy food going to people in need.

Participating Farms (so far): Meadow’s Mirth Stratham, NH; Stout Oak Farm Brentwood, NH; Heron Pond Farm South Hampton, NH; Riverside Farm North Berwick, ME
