On Friday, April 20th, TFP volunteers Irene, Mei, and Andy Li officially opened their new food struck, the Mei Mei Street Kitchen. "Mei mei" (pronounced may-may) means "little sister" in Chinese, so it is an appropriate name for this sibling-run food truck that serves up creative Chinese food delicacies. Mei Mei has been cruising the streets of Boston for one week now and has been delivering delicious food around the city. Their dishes include pork buns, kale salad, macarons, and more.

Mei Mei Street Kitchen creates Chinese-American food that is made from locally-sourced and sustainably-produced ingredients. The three sibling owners all love food and strive to support local and regional food systems while delivering high quality and delicious food to their customers. They also connect with and support local organizations such as The Food Project and the Bowdoin Street Health Center's Healthy Food Access Project.

Sayed A. Mohamed-Nour, director of the Nubian United Benevolent International Association (NUBIA), Inc., was honored as a Boston Neighborhood Fellow at a ceremony held on April 11, 2012, at the office of City Year. Sayed joined five other local community service leaders in the fellowship class of 2012. Mayor Thomas M. Menino, who described the festivities as “his favorite event” on his calendar, served as keynote speaker.

Administered by The Philanthropic Initiative, the fellowship program celebrates the unsung heroes of greater Boston, builders of community who make vital contributions but who have gone unrecognized. Founded in 1990, the program annually honors individuals who receive direct grants of $30,000 over a three-year period.

Farm Shares Are Available for 2012!


The Food Project currently has Community-Supported Agriculture farm shares available for the 2012 farm season. The Food Project's Community-Supported Agriculture program is a partnership between our farm and a community of supporters. At the beginning of the season, CSA members purchase a "share" of the crops that will be grown. In return, The Food Project provides a healthy supply of sustainably grown, fresh vegetables, flowers, and herbs.

Each week, CSA members come to our farm to pick up their share of the produce or receive a box share of produce. Each CSA farm share contains enough vegetables to feed a family of four mixed-diet individuals or 2-3 vegetarian adults. Each CSA box share contains enough vegetables to feed 2-3 mixed-diet individuals or 1-2 vegetarian adults. The CSA program runs from mid-June through the end of October and offers a wide variety of produce.
