On Saturday, May 18, 2024, the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation is hosting the 11th Annual 5K Milk Run/Walk at Ramsey’s Farm in Wilmington, DE. All net proceeds will go to The Ministry of Caring’s “Milk for Children Fund”, the Food Bank of Delaware “Backpack Program”, and the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation’s efforts to advance agricultural literacy.
The Ministry of Caring in Wilmington serves about 500 nutritious meals at no cost to needy and hungry men, women, and children daily, with milk being just one of their offerings at the table. The Food Bank of Delaware’s Backpack Program provides food for at-risk children on the weekends and holidays when school is not in session.
We are thrilled to say we have raised over $200,000 in the last 10 years of the event. While our success has set the bar high, we hope to keep that number growing. Proceeds from the event support Delawareans from across the state and help them to better understand agriculture and from where their food originates.
Please join us in this worthy cause by donating to help continue to provide milk and food for these children.
