is proud to be a partner in the
From Farm to Food Pantry Program
Today more than ever we realize the value of fresh food to our community.
Partnering with Wagner Farm's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, FWF pledged funding for 5 baskets to “From Farm to Food Pantry”.
Delivered weekly to the Northfield Food Pantry by Farm staff, each basket is loaded with fresh fruits and vegetables grown and harvested at Historic Wagner Farm.
The Friends of Wagner Farm also supported
Historic Wagner Farm’s “Feeding Glenview” initiative.
In 2020, the Farm:
Delivered over 500 dozen eggs to the Northfield Food Pantry.
Delivered fresh produce twice a week to the Northfield Food Pantry.
Fulfilled 30 weekly Community Sourced Agriculture (CSA) baskets.
Continued to work toward it's goal of producing 20,000 lbs. of food this year.
Contributed over 4000 lbs of beef, pork and lamb to the program, all raised at the Farm by the Glenview Clovers 4H club, and going to local families and businesses.
Produced an additional 1000 lbs of chicken.
