Our High School is 100% free student lunch based on the income level for our community. We don’t know where their 3rd meal comes from. Just because kids get a little older doesn’t mean their needs go away, a lot time their needs become greater. We are very grateful for the opportunity to work with Wish Farms to help supply food to our students.

Seeds of Impact

Feel good. Eat berries. Make a difference. With a focus on three pillars of giving: food insecurity, youth education and community, the Wish Farms Family Foundation was established to cultivate positive change one berry at a time. With every purchase of Wish Farms berries, a portion goes towards supporting children and families in need. Wish Farms and their family of growers are dedicated to supporting the communities around them, because everyone deserves to eat healthy and be happy.

Slide Hunger Relief "Wish Farms has been a tremendous year-round partner to our network of 12 food banks and we are thrilled to be partnering with them. Our agricultural partners help us make a difference by donating wholesome produce to distribute to the 2.8 million Floridians who need it most.” - Robin Safely, Feeding Florida Slide Youth Education Wish Farms and the Wishnatski family have been strengthening families and helping children achieve success through RCMA’s extensive programs since 1997. For 23 years, Wish Farms has been a critical partner and we look forward to working with them to support Florida’s children for years to come!” - Clay Hollenkamp; Redlands Christian Migrant Association, Community Relations Manager Slide School Fundraising "Working with Wish Farms was wonderful! The order process was easy. The berries arrived on time and were absolutely beautiful, bright red and huge! Our school community loved this new idea for fundraising!" - Shauna Bergwall, Assistant Principal, Highland City Elementary Slide Li-Berry Boxes The student's smiles completely brightened up the room when Wish Farms visited and announced they had "Li-berry" boxes in their neighborhoods. Sure enough, the next day, almost every book was gone and being enjoyed by the kids. We are so appreciative for Wish Farms' impact on our community." - Donna Parks, Career and Technical Director, Hardee High School Slide Supporting Mental Health Wish Farms recently had the distinct honor of presenting the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay with a check from the Wish Farms Family Foundation.
The funds will be used to support Gateway Services, which is a 24/7 call center that provides support for suicide prevention, trauma counseling, sexual assault services, travelers aid, and more.
