Sandhills Farm to Table Program Offered Again
Posted Date:
3/28/2017
The Town of Aberdeen encourages employees to support local farmers and eat healthy. The Sandhills Farm to Table program is offering produce boxes to be delivered every other Wednesday which will begin mid April through mid August.

Each produce box will have 6 to 10 different produce items depending on what is in peak for the week. The box is available in standard size (enough for 2 people who regularly eat produce) for $16.00 each pay period. The Town of Aberdeen will pay for the $15 membership fee and $10.00 of each produce box (original price is $26.00) and the employee can have the $16.00 subscription fee payroll deducted each pay period. Larger and/or more frequent boxes of produce are also available for an additional cost.

In 2015 $266,000 went to Sandhills family farmers and artisans, and $41,000 was contributed directly to community schools, churches, and organizations for hosting a Gathering Site. Over 3 tons of produce was donated to neighbors in need through various food pantries and shelters in the Sandhills.

In addition, you support grassroots efforts to preserve farmland, grow new farmers, retain open lands and green space, and encourage sustainable production and the growing of new crops for this area.
Contact Regina or Jamie for more information and/or to sign up.
