In the peak months of harvest season, the amount of food grown for donation on the Wilmington College Farm sometimes totals hundreds of pounds a day. There are several need-based agencies in Wilmington and Clinton County that give food to the hungry, and we make sure they have fresh, nutritious produce as often as possible.
In 2009 we donated more than 10,000 lbs. of food to local organizations. We work most often with Sugartree Ministries, the largest food pantry in the County. We also distribute to Clinton County Community Action, the Wilmington Homeless Shelter and Jackson Area Ministries, among others. Does your organization distribute food to those in need? Contact our Food Distribution Coordinator below.
In 2010 we hope to expand both the amount of food we are able to grow and the agencies to which we distribute. If you or organization would like more information about our food distribution, please contact:
