ACTION OF THE MONTHSupport Family Farmers with Farm Aid!
Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and funds to promote a strong and resilient system of agriculture. Dave Matthews joined the Farm Aid Board of Directors In 2001. Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $48 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms. On September 19, 2015 Farm Aid hosts its 30th anniversary concert in Chicago, IL. Dig in with us and support our family farmers by donating to Farm Aid today.
