Foundation Events

The Delaware Farm Bureau  Foundation was incorporated in March 2013 as a 501 (c)(3)  non-profit organization. Headquartered in Camden,  Delaware, the Foundation was created to build awareness,  understanding and positive  public perception about  Delaware’s farm operations, promote fresh local food and sponsor the Ag Education Mobile Classroom.  The foundation partners with the New Castle, Kent and Sussex County farm bureaus to raise the funds necessary to  successfully achieve the mission and provide education  materials, and feed the hungry. 

The Ag Lab is a mobile classroom brought to schools and summer camps throughout Delaware to teach kids ages 5-12 about farming. The Ag Lab aims to educate youth about healthy eating and agriculture as an industry and way of life through a co-operative lesson that helps children learn where their food comes from, how it’s made and what different careers are available.
