For this month's Farmer Hero profile, we spoke with Pete Flynn, a first-generation Pennsylvania farmer. He and his family are growing good food for their community while helping to feed the hungry at the Chester County Food Bank.
Pete says, "I believe in the importance of sustainability of local food — it just makes sense."
Grants to empower family farmers leading change in our food and farm system.
"Farm Aid sends money to hardworking folks who share our mission to strengthen family farmers. Farm Aid grants support their work and invest in projects that build a thriving future for family farm agriculture and good food for all in both rural and urban communities." — Willie Nelson
