About

A 501(c)(3) public charity, the Matthew 25 Farm grows thousands of pounds of fresh produce each year and donates it to food pantries, soup kitchens, half-way houses and directly to families within Central New York. Although large quantities go to the City of Syracuse and the City of Cortland, produce is sent throughout five counties.

We can use help with planting, plant management (weeding/watering), harvesting, and distribution. Except for two paid positons, it is an all volunteer based organization.
