Fork Farms Foundation
The Fork Farms Foundation is working to end hunger by making fresh, healthy food accessible. By investing in the Foundation, we can invest in solutions and intentionally convene strategic partners in the communities we serve to further this vision, together.
Access to fresh food is a human right
Facing hunger also means making sacrifices. Studies show that 84% of households served by a national hunger relief organization reported buying the cheapest food — instead of healthy food — in order to provide enough to eat.
Summer School Hunger Relief Grants
Funded by the Sonnentag Foundation, grants will be awarded to five Green Bay-area schools or after-school programs. Grants will support organizations to grow more than 250 pounds of fresh vegetables to be donated to local food pantries. Participating schools should already have an indoor or outdoor garden such as the Flex Farm. This project seeks to address the unprecedented challenges food pantries are facing as inflation rises, supply chain issues continue, and client numbers increase.
Applications will open January 9th, 2023 and close February 10th, 2023.
