Farm to Family + Groupon = Fresh & Healthy

Exciting news that just went out to our mailing list...   Not on the list, but want to be?  click here

In Boston, as in many big cities, access to fresh, healthy food can be limited by residents' income and availability of grocery stores. These factors mean that those who need it most – families – have to rely on less than ideal sources of food.

Farm to Family provides a weekly share of vegetables straight from the farm. The Food Project will provide these shares at a low cost to families who may not have access to such fresh, healthy foods otherwise. This program overcomes barriers of geography and economy to make sure that everyone in our community can make healthy food choices.

Specifically, Farm to Family aims to serve families with young children in hopes that a good start will lead to long term healthy eating habits.

The Food Project and Groupon are excited to partner today to kick off Farm to Family for the 2011 growing season.

Community Programs at The Food Project
More than 600 families will share in the bounty of our harvest this year, including over 125 in underserved neighborhoods. Each will be provided with fresh, local produce and recipes to help them enjoy a healthy diet. This project is one part of The Food Project's larger scope of community programs. Current work also includes building raised bed gardens so that residents of Boston and the North Shore can grow their own food (more than 750 by year's end). Another program matches dollar for dollar when SNAP (food stamp) users buy food at the majority of farmers' market in the city of Boston.
