Veggies For All
As of spring 2019, Veggies for All has returned to its roots and is once again a project of Unity Barn Raisers.
VFA was founded in Unity, Maine in 2007 by young farmers who recognized the potential for local agriculture to relieve hunger. UBR provided vital support to the project when it launched, including fiscal sponsorship and administrative support. For the next seven years, under UBR’s care, the program grew significantly and matured into a food bank farm capable of producing literal tons of local produce for hunger relief. In 2014, VFA became a program of MFT and in 2018, VFA held a series of community-based evaluations involving different program stakeholders. The outcomes made it clear that the heart of VFA lies in the community of Unity, where the program is most valuable as a vehicle for community building and engagement around food and farming. UBR’s work focuses on improving the vibrancy, sustainability, and health of our community for all people and VFA will be a natural extension of UBR’s current programs.
