Weidel Realtors Bring the Farm to the People
Pennington, NJ – Acres of sweet corn grown on the Weidel Family Farm were recently hand-harvested by volunteers from the Weidel Offices to be donated to area shelters and local food banks. It has been the mission of Richard A. Weidel, President, to give something back to those in need, so several years ago he set in motion a plan of “bringing the farm to the people” where acres of sweet corn were raised, hand-picked and delivered to area fire departments, police squads and other municipal staff to thank them for their help in the community.
“The harvest was so greatly appreciated we decided to increase the production and scope of our distribution,” said Mr. Weidel. “This year, we once again partnered with Farmers Against Hunger to donate as much as possible and help those facing challenging times.”
Farmers Against Hunger is a unique food rescue program that collects fresh fruits and vegetables from New Jersey farms and distributes it, free of charge, to organizations that help feed people. Produce is distributed to organizations dedicated to helping people: food banks, churches, soup kitchens and other organizations with a meal or pantry program. Currently food is distributed to organizations throughout much of New Jersey.
Farmers Against Hunger Program Assistant, Greg Swearingen, gathered over 1,200 ears of corn from Weidel’s Broad Oak Farm for distribution and was extremely thankful for the donation.
