Farming our land to feed the hungry

Donation protected

My name is Paul Barnes. My wife, Katrina, and I have land on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
For the last three years we have been growing food for our local homeless shelters and soup kitchens.

We would like to expand and grow our operation to help feed more hungry children and families in need with healthy, organic food.

The shelters we grow food for currently, one shelter feeds 1200 people a month and the other shelter houses and feeds 50 families a day.

We spend our extra time and money growing food for the homeless and the hungry. Fresh food is so important for people in need.

Canned and non perishable food is not the best diet for anyone, especially growing children.

Last year we were blessed with a large amount of chain link fence that a contractor was throwing away so we used an old horse shed and the fence and now we have chickens and are able to give eggs as well. Up to 14 dozen a week!

We have 13 acres total but we can only grow and manage about 2 acres. We don't have the equipment or man/woman power to use the whole piece of land. It would be awesome to expand our operation and to be able to feed more people.

Even if we don't raise money we will continue just on a small scale. Currently, our neighbor farmer uses the rest of the land so it doesn't become over grown . We had to do something with the extra land, our tractor couldn't bush hog it anymore. Our goal is to see all our land used to grow food for the shelters and soup kitchens and watch the trucks roll out with free food for the hungry.

We need to get the word out if you could just mention about us if you don't want to donate. Every dollar puts food in a child's mouth, helps that mother and father feed their family, and helps the shelters help more people by feeding them the fresh, healthy food they can't afford or don't receive. Right here in our local Delaware, Maryland area.
