Mission Statement

Community F.A.R.E. (Food, Advocacy, Resources, Education) helps safeguard a diverse and healthy local food economy that will preserve farmland integrity and biodiversity and ensure that food grown here is accessible to residents of Frederick County and its regional neighbors. Frederick Fresh Online, a joint initiative of Community FARE and the Frederick County Food Council, supports local small farmers by providing an additional year-round market for their products, and makes purchasing local food easier for Frederick County residents (and safer during the Covid-19 pandemic).

Description

Community FARE is dedicated to promoting sustainable food production in our region and bringing healthy food to our local markets.

Many of today’s industrial agriculture practices damage our soil, air, water, and ecosystems. Linked to this industrialized food system there are very challenging social and economic issues that impact community sustainability, such as obesity, ill health, increased rates of cancer, petroleum based (and green house gas emitting) long distance hauling of goods, and the competitive edge in subsidies and quantity sales available to the conventional large-scale farmers.

To address these issues, growing attention is being given to building wholesale and direct marketing channels for farmers, and customer access for local food grown on small to medium sized farms promoting environmentally sustainable production practices. Moreover doing this creates new jobs, fosters business development, brings new food products to local markets and attracts younger farmers to a profession that will provide a healthy, satisfying and lucrative future.
