You Can Help Relieve Hunger!
Through the Snipes Farm & Education Center’s Hunger Relief Program
It’s a little known fact, but true: One in ten children in the Bucks County region face hunger – often daily.
At Snipes Farm & Education Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we believe in giving back to the community. As part of our hunger relief program, we donate 70% of the organic produce that we grow to those who need it most. This is made possible with the help of volunteers, donors and our food-distribution partners.
You, too, can help by making a donation, becoming a volunteer or partnering with Snipes Farm & Education Center (Snipes Farm) to expand our hunger-relief efforts.
Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter: Donations support our deliveries of fresh produce and eggs to the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter. With support from Danaher Lynch Family Foundation, we also maintain a vegetable garden at the shelter to grow produce for the residents. Children from the shelter attend the Snipes Farm Summer Camp free of charge. Bucks County Commissioners: Snipes Farm & Education Center is grateful to the Bucks County Commissioners for underwriting our ability to provide nutritious produce weekly to Bucks County senior centers during the growing season, including tomatoes, corn, cabbage, cucumbers, kale, lettuce, peppers, potatoes, radishes, scallions, spinach, squash, fresh herbs.
Rolling Harvest: Rolling Harvest, which connects farmers with local families, helps support our Bucks County senior center program (see above) by delivering Snipes Farm produce to senior centers in Central and Upper Bucks County.
Interfaith Food Alliance: Generous donors enable Snipes Farm to deliver fresh produce twice monthly to the Interfaith Food Coalition Pantry at Morrisville United Methodist Church.
Trenton Housing Authority: The Trenton Housing Authority Health Team is dedicated to improving the well-being of the people of Trenton by partnering with community groups like the Snipes Farm & Education Center. Together we bring fresh, healthy produce to low-income seniors and people suffering from diabetes. Snipes Farm also participates in the Trenton Food Access Stakeholder Group, which seeks support for a "Neighborhood Heath Hub" nonprofit or co-op grocery store in Trenton.
Robert Wood Johnson Barnabas Health: Along with weekly donations of fresh produce from Snipes Farm for more than 60 families in Trenton, NJ, RWJ Barnabas Health monitors the health of participants to document the impact of dietary changes.
United Way Of Bucks County: United Way’s Bucks Knocks Out Hunger program provides fresh Snipes Farm produce to fight hunger in Doylestown, Quakertown, Bristol – and every other community in Bucks County. Their meals are available to every food pantry and senior center, from Reigelsville to Bristol.
