VFFC’s Farmacy Project is an innovative collaboration working at the intersection of agriculture, public health, and economic development. The Farmacy Project partners with economically challenged new and emerging local farms, primary health care providers, and educators. VFFC offers an actionable preventative health initiative while involving local youth through summer engagement opportunities connecting community volunteers, farmers, and Farm Share Members as part of the regional food network.
VFFC's Farmacy Members benefit from 10-12lbs of local, nutrient diverse, fresh produce, for 15 weeks during the growing season and monthly for the rest of the year. Farm Shares are supplemented with nutrition and cooking education, community dinners, workshops, and cultural events.
