     OUR PRIORITIES

Address climate change’s threat to agriculture—and how farmers can help

The climate crisis threatens farmers’ ability to grow food in a productive and environmentally sustainable way. Yet, farmers are part of the solution. Rebuilding the soil and sequestering carbon hold great promise to create resilience to climate change.

Seek solutions to market-based problems

to make NJ farmland affordable to those who grow food sustainably, and address the lack of a pipeline for local farms to distribute their products to nearby ready-and-waiting, high-dense populations.

 

Feed those in need with surplus food from farms

To date, we organized hundreds of volunteers to glean 635,000 lbs. of surplus food generously donated by 20 farms in three counties. This farm-fresh food was delivered to 100+ food pantries in 7 counties.

 

Cultivate change by educating policy makers

It all begins by raising awareness at the community level and working for regulations, policies and laws that support a healthy food system.
