Request a free farmers' box
Dutch farmers and gardeners are putting together three thousand farmers' boxes full of fresh food for refugees from Ukraine free of charge. Would you like to receive such a box? You can sign up through the website of the Zuidelijke Land- en Tuinbouw Organisatie (ZLTO).
A farmers' box contains:
Boxes will be delivered to your door in November. You will be contacted about that one day before delivery. You can request a maximum of five packages per address.
Farmers' Associations started the action because they say 'everyone knows of a host family or shelter nearby that could use a farmers' kit'. This is something they want to commit to.
Update 5 October 2022: All farmers' packages have since been given away. You can no longer apply for a farmer's package.
The farmers' boxes are offered by farmer associations ZLTO, LTO Noord, and LLTB. Boerschappen handles the gathering, packaging, and shipping of the packages.
