Community Giving

COMMUNITY GIVING

Rooted in our community

Why do we give? Because it’s the right thing to do.

We feel compelled to help others, especially those who have less than we do. And we’re committed to making a positive mark on our community. Besides our giving mantra being to help everyone eat better tasting food and more nutritious food, we actively contribute time, money, energy and information so we can make this great town where we live and play even better. And our staff is committed to serving in our community: on non-profit boards, coaching team sports and in community organizations like the Chamber of Commerce.

We have been around for a long time and plan to continue to build worthwhile, long lasting relationships within our community. It’s a huge part of who we are as a business and as a community leader.

We prioritize support for non-profits (501 c 3) that focus their improvement of community, health, youth, and or serve our education system. We prioritize our giving to organizations that operate within the same neighborhoods and communities as our stores.

Our Woodstock community includes:
Woodstock, Pomfret, Barnard, Reading, and Bridgewater

Our Waterbury community includes:
Waterbury and Stowe

Our Current Campaigns:

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s Farmers’ Round Up?
It’s an easy way for our customers to support area nonprofits that make our community a better place to live, learn, and play. When you round up your purchase to the nearest dollar amount, the additional cents are donated to a specific cause.

Why do we do it?
Farmers’ mission is to Feed Our Community by providing awesome food and great service. To us, service extends beyond the walls of the Market into the greater Woodstock community. The Round-Up program is one way we can support nonprofits that are making a difference.


 

 

 

 

What’s the Harvest For Heroes?
Harvest For Heroes is our annual fundraiser to support the CHaD Hero fundraising campaign for the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock. It’s a lot of fun. Check out the CHaD page for our 2019 campaign.

Why do we do it?
Over the years, many Farmers’ families have been impacted by the amazing work done at the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD), from major surgeries to wellness checks. We think it’s important to continue to support this amazing hospital.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s the BYOB Campaign?
We see a real need to eliminate the use of single use bags in our communities and around the world. We encourage all of our customer to use reusable bags when shopping at our stores. Of course, sometimes we forget our bags. We offer paper bags for sale at our registers. Large bags are 10 cents, medium/small bags are 5 cents. All money is forwarded to the food shelves in Woodstock and Waterbury.

Why do we do it?
To help cut down on the use of single use bags! Plus, we’re able to support our local food shelves.
