‘Sponsor’ a senior 

Heart & Soil Collective’s Community Produce and Winter Soup Programs provide free, fresh produce purchased from small farms and hearty soups made using local ingredients directly to seniors and families easing food insecurity, building community, decreasing food waste and helping support Berkshire County farms. We are seeking support from local businesses and individuals who want to help provide food security programming by ‘sponsoring’ a senior.  

WHO WE SERVE 

Our Community Produce and Winter Soup Programs serve seniors, families, organizations and small farms across Berkshire County. See who we serve below:

  • Delivery directly to homes in Lanesborough, Pittsfield, Dalton and Adams (expanding to Cheshire and Savoy in 2024)

THE IMPACT

Every $600 raised provides free, fresh produce directly to a local family for the season, every $300 covers the cost of providing weekly soup to a senior. All donations are tax deductible and help fund food security programming.
