The Farm to School Fund

As with many of the funds that the Foundation manages, the idea for this fund came from someone in the community who saw a need that could be met through the cooperation of and collaboration with the whole community. Breanna Costello's idea for this fund is rooted in her dedication to the well being of children, especially those in this school district, and to the community that serves them. 
The purpose of this Fund is to nourish our children, support our farmers, and strengthen our community. 100% of designated donations to this fund will be used to purchase food from Rondout Valley Growers for the Rondout Valley Central School District Food Service Program.
Contributions to this fund are tax deductible under IRS 501(c)(3) rules. Click here to download a donation form for this or any of the other funds listed.
