The Farmer’s Market returns!
Starting on Wednesday May 17 through late September, FamilyWorks will be the beneficiary of the wonderful leftover produce each week from the Wallingford Farmer’s Market! Several volunteers are needed to transport this bounty from Meridian Park to the FamilyWorks Food Bank in Wallingford between 6-7 pm every Wednesday through late September. You will either need your own car (with plenty of space for the crates) or you can drive the FamilyWorks van. This is a great way to get to visit the market each week and to get to know our vendor partners!
