|Hello 2020 champions! I’ve been thinking about 2021 and the potential for all of us that have participated with BuyFarmFood.com in donating and buying food for ourselves and our families. |
I was inspired this morning watching a video that the Lightning hockey team had on their website. Click here to see it. It’s called, “We Own It”. It’s not a perfect parallel, but I would invite you. If you haven’t already, to “own it”. Own your own participation and the thrill of being a part of what we did last year. Because you truly do “own it”. You, and all of us at BuyFarmFood.com, working as a team, did what we did.
I love hockey and our Tampa Bay Lightning because when I watch them, the men that we have on our team inspire me to be better. Work harder, to never give up. To be gracious no matter the outcome, to work as a team. To listen and learn from mistakes, and I could go on and on. They achieved the ultimate goal for a hockey team last year and won the Stanley Cup Championship.
I feel the same way about BuyFarmFood.com. In 2020, we had over 5000 customers purchase boxes for themselves and others. Together we donated 45 tons of food to families that need help. We made a difference in our community that was beyond anything I envisioned.

What can we do to follow it up? What would represent a Championship this year? LOL I would measure that in customers and donations again. 𝐒𝐨 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟏, 𝐥𝐞𝐭’𝐬 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝟏𝟎𝟎 𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝟏𝟎,𝟎𝟎𝟎 𝐜𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐬! Sound good?
We already have some things set in place to make it happen. Let’s turn our 2020 champions into our 2021 champions!
The first is that Advent Health has agreed to let BuyFarmFood.com use it’s hospital campus as a pickup point. They will also help us by promoting us to their employees, patients, and community. Within the next 30 days or so, we’ll begin having pickups on Thursday in Wesley Chapel at their facility located at 2600 Bruce B Downs Blvd, Wesley Chapel, FL 33544 . I’m also in discussions with several potential new pickup locations in South Tampa. The South Tampa pickup will be on Fridays. We hope to open both of them within the next 30 days or so. This will give us the opportunity to go back and serve Hillsborough County again.
I also have plans later this spring or early summer to create 2nd pickup locations for each day of the week.
That way we can expand our reach to more families in more communities. So “yes” Pasco, “yes” Manatee, and “yes” to other locations. We’ll get there, it all just takes time.
In addition to that, as most of you may know, we now have a refrigerated trailer to transport the food, and a truck that is capable of pulling it safely. The trailer took almost 4 months to build and customize for our needs, and filled my Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays for many of those weeks to put together.
We have a great team in place that helps portion out the food each day, and we have solid relationships with many farmers and suppliers that help us get the freshest, best food as well.
We are all set to have a fantastic 2021, and we hope to bring home “our” 2020 Champions in this new year.
