Community Produce Program

In 2020 we launched Community Produce Program- providing free, fresh produce purchased from local farms to senior residents through weekly delivery and no-contact distribution. In the past three years we adapted and expanded programming delivering to seniors and families across four towns in partnership with 5 small farms in 2024. Community Produce Program helps us meet our mission of making healthy food accessible to all by supporting small farms, getting fresh and local food directly to homes and decreasing food waste. Our long-term goals for Community Produce Program are ot expand into towns across Berkshire County, helping support more local farms and providing fresh food directly to more local homes. 

 

Deliveries run from June through October, with produce purchased from our Partner Farms

This program was great. When I got my veggies on Tuesdays I would plan my dinner around it. Great produce, great people! Thank you.

This program was a wonderful way to reach out to the community in so many ways. It not only provided local fresh produce to seniors but it was a vehicle for community involvement at a time when people were looking for a way to stay connected and help their neighbors. Kudos to Kristen & Chris for not only identifying a need but for finding an innovative solution.

This is a great community service and Kristen deserves a lot of credit for getting it started. I hope it continues to grow and thrive!
