We are so grateful for the generous volunteers who help deliver produce to our community partners each week. Mary Delevaga is an active volunteer and member of our community. Her dedication to service is inspirational, and we couldn’t do this work without her.
What do you do for Farm Discovery?
“I deliver produce to Encompass TAY once a week. I love driving out to the farm, it’s beautiful. The welcome at Encompass is always a great part of my day.”
How did you get involved?
“During the pandemic, I looked for opportunities to volunteer, get outside and interact with others. Delivering produce was perfect. I also helped out at the tomato, strawberry, and pumpkin u-pick events that offered a way for families to safely visit the farm for fun, music, and food!”
Why do you stay involved?
“I believe in the values and mission of Farm Discovery and at the same time, I get so much from doing service in my community. There is great need. I want to support a program that help all of us, especially young children, understand the interconnectedness of food systems.”
What is your favorite FD program and why?
“I am partial to delivering produce to food insecure communities. I also love Farm Camps, Leaders in Training (LIT).”
