2020 Annual Report

We are excited to share what we’ve been seeding and growing over this last year. Our 2020 Annual Report shows how our partnerships helped us start new programs in response to the pandemic and how donors and grantors were crucial in accomplishing renovations needed for all of our community efforts. We want to thank all our volunteers, interns, partner groups, colleagues, and staff for working hard in growing a healthy community!

2020 highlights:

  • Doubled our food distribution; 11,000 boxes out
  • Started a clinical referral program with 121 participants with over 1,134 deliveries
  • Donated $27,000 produce ~ 6,320 lbs to reach 4,900 patients and frontline healthcare workers
  • $139,017 supported local Michigan farmers

Our Produce to Patient Program really makes a difference in patient’s lives, here’s what Dr. Irina Burman from Academic Internal Medicine (AIM) Clinic had to say:

“Every Wednesday morning during the summer and fall of 2020 I would make a stop at The Farm to pick up a very generous donation of seasonal vegetables and bring them to the AIM clinic. Veggie Wednesdays became so popular that many patients would make an extra effort to schedule their visits on Wednesday, just so they could take some greens home. We were sharing not only wonderful nutritious food with our patients, but also provided them hope and a much needed sense of normalcy during these difficult times.” – Dr. Burman
