Donating farm products to food banks – upcoming webinar

Farm to Family Banner

CDFA partners with California Association of Food Banks to provide resources and information to  farmers, ranchers and food processors 
Webinar – Wednesday, April 8 from 10-11 a.m.

Join CDFA and the California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) to discuss resources and funding to support farm donations to food banks during this critical time. Statewide food banks are facing significant demand and farm operations may have supply availability as foodservice and other retail outlets are impacted by COVID-19. 
The CAFB’s Farm to Family Program can work with farmers, ranchers and food processors to take surplus food products and distribute it to families in need. Supporting resources potentially include assistance with picking and pack-out costs, transportation of the product, and possible recouping of some product costs.
