From donating non-perishables to the pantry or hosting a food drive to helping tend and harvest at the farm and garden, we have many ways to get involved with the Field and Fork Program! If you have any questions or want more information after reading the information below, please email aprizzia@ufl.edu.

The Farm and the Gardens are a great place to learn the art and science of growing your own food! We also grow food for those in need as part of our efforts. Students can come out one time, or become a regular member of our team and get a share of our harvest! We would love to have new volunteers and members, and encourage you to join us in the fields! You can see our workdays and times on our Calendar.

For more information on volunteering or joining the garden, please email Claudie Babineaux – cbabineaux@ufl.edu

Clubs

Many clubs participate with our program, through the gardens, hosting food drives or volunteering with the pantry or through events and programs.

The Gator Gardening Club is the club that coordinates with our staff to oversee the Student Garden and helps manage the production system from beginning to end – planting, nurturing, and, harvesting all crops.

If your club would like to host a food drive for the pantry, please fill out the form HERE. If you would like to participate with the garden, please contact Claudie Babineaux – cbabineaux@ufl.edu
