Due to the corona crisis, the project 'Farming for the Food Bank' gained momentum. Organic arable farmer Gert Noordhoff from Bellingwolde – in the East of Groningen - decided together with Jos Meijers from social enterprise Toentje and Sjoerd Pool from educational institution Terra to grow vegetables for the food bank in the city of Groningen.
