Delaware Urban Farm and Food Coalition// here is the normal content // ?>
The Delaware Urban Farm and Food Coalition (DEUFFC) expands the growing of fruits and vegetables in and near urban areas of northern Delaware, improves access to healthy foods for those who currently don’t have wide access, and provides information regarding healthy eating. All to meet our goal: healthy, sustainable, vibrant communities.
Throughout northern New Castle County, we are: assessing how fresh fruits and vegetables are currently grown and distributed and the potential for expansion of this system; reaching out to minority neighborhoods and stakeholders to increase the demand for healthy food; supporting the Healthy Corner Store initiative in partnership with the Food Trust; addressing the need for equitable water access for urban growing efforts; and, forming a growing network. We’re a committed partnership of farmers and gardeners, citizen advocates, state, county, and local agencies, nonprofits, health care organizations, and business and industry.
