Bainum Foundation Farm

Our food-security work began in 2015 when the Bainum family donated 263 acres of farmland in Middleburg, Virginia, to the foundation. This offered us a unique opportunity to directly address food security challenges in the D.C. metropolitan area. The Bainum Foundation Farm, a separate entity, now grows nearly 40,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables annually. This produce is distributed primarily to households and early learning programs in Wards 7 and 8 through several of our food partners.
