Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Concessions® is the first-of-its-kind model for featuring family farm-identified, local and organic foods at major concert events. HOMEGROWN Concessions® has fed more than 283,000 festivalgoers since its introduction in 2007 at the HOMEGROWN Festival at Randall’s Island in New York City. It has served as a model for entertainment events, including the Super Bowl and a variety of music festivals and venues that have embraced the Good Food Movement in concessions.
