Net proceeds will go to the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation’s mission to build awareness, understand and positive public perception about Delaware farm operations and fresh local food. The foundation provides educational materials and opportunities, grants scholarships and helps feed the hungry. This upcoming school year, the foundation’s Ag Lab will be going into the public school system to teach children about the possibility of a career in agriculture, about healthy eating and offering the opportunity to experience what it is like to grow their own food.
