Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 13th, at 10:00 a.m. (PT), CDFA and the California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) will join Western Growers for a webinar discussing California's recent expansion of the Farm to Family Program, which will provide additional 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 works with farmers, ranchers and food processors to take surplus food products and distribute them to families in need. Funding is potentially available to offset some of the costs related to harvesting, packing and transporting the products.
Grimmway Farms President, Jeff Huckaby, and CAFB Farm to Family Director, Steve Linkhart, will be the guest speakers. WG Sr. Director, Membership, Kim Sherman, will moderate the webinar.
