Jessie Farnham is once again raising money for the New England Dairy as she has been chosen to run the 2023 Boston Marathon under a charity bib assigned to the nonprofit! The fundraising goal is $10,000 and she looks for your support in her goal to help contribute to the education around dairy farming in New England.
Running for New England Dairy is a perfect fit for the President of Frazer Insurance Agency as the supporting farmers, dairies and more, is an integral part of the Agency’s business. Through involvement with the Vermont Farm Bureau, NOFA, Water Quality Organizations, and several other entities, the agency supports agricultural through the insurance industry. We work with clients, state agencies, and others to do our part to control costs, recognize risks, and promote the need for farming within New England and beyond.
Dairy farmers are an essential part of our New England community. In addition to providing local and nutritious dairy products, through New England Dairy programming they are supporting school nutrition programs, youth wellness, and helping to ensure our neighbors in need are nourished.
Funds raised through these bibs will support increased physical activity, nutrition education, and access to healthy food for youth and families in Boston and throughout New England.
New England Dairy is a non-profit education organization staffed by registered dietitians and other professionals that serves as the voice of our local dairy farmers. For over 100 years, New England Dairy has worked in five New England states to celebrate all things dairy – farming, food, nutrition, and wellness.
New England Dairy’s principal work includes:
• Supporting access to food in New England communities through partnerships, funding, and other resources. • Supporting youth wellness in schools through Fuel Up to Play 60, which provides a framework, resources, and funding to increase access to healthy foods and opportunities to be physically active in and out of school. The program encourages youth to consume nutrient-rich foods (low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains) and provides youth leadership opportunities and development. • Connecting New England dairy farmers and the communities they serve via videography, in-person events, and on-farm visits to share the New England dairy story.
