Blue Plate Project
Our sister non-profit is called Blue Plate Project. Why Blue Plate? During the Great Depression, a Blue Plate Special was "a low-priced daily diner special: a main course with all the fixins, a daily combo, a square for two bits."
The shared aim of our farm and Blue Plate is to get more good food onto the tables of people in need. To do this, we've partnered with anyone who wants to help. To date, that list includes half a dozen other local businesses, a church, an indie band, the local health department, a community foundation, and a host of too-generous individuals.
Free Food for Kids, Schools & Families
We are able to offer totally free food to participating schools and families with kids in participating HeadStart and WIC programs through our involvement with the Hoophouses for Health program. They're beautiful. You should check out Hoophouses for Health.
We Accept Bridge Cards
We accept Food Stamps/Bridge Cards/EBT in exchange for any of our food, including CSA shares, at any of our pick-up locations. We also accept Project Fresh, Senior Project Fresh, and DoubleUp Food Bucks in exchange for food at the Boyne City Farmer’s Market.
If you know of someone who is in need and does not meet any of the criteria above, please let us know and we will see what we can do to help.
