The World Foundation for Children (WFC), the mother organization of the Volunteer Farms, was granted Public Charity status as a 501 (c) (3) in 2004. The goal of the Volunteer Farms is to increase the availability of nutritious foods to the food insecure residing in the Shenandoah Valley, Northern and Central Piedmont, and Northern Virginia. Some of the produce that we grow and donate include: squash, apples, cabbage, watermelon, beans, beets & potatoes.Read More
It reduces stress and brings people together. Volunteering unites people from diverse backgrounds to work toward a common goal, building camaraderie and teamwork. Through working with local non-profit agencies, volunteers learn about different facets of our government. Volunteering makes a difference. Since opening in 2004, our volunteers have helped us to grow over 325 tons for 1/3 of the Virginia area.Register to Volunteer
Let's start this growing season off right. A tax-deductible donation can be made to the farm at any time. It will help us to plant more produce, grow it more efficiently, and reach more children that are not getting enough nutrition. The snowy weather has set us back a weeks already but the growing season looks promising. We need your help and your donation to assure that we reach as many children as possible. It is a great time to support the Farm.Donate Here
