Grant #22: Susan – Brookwood Community Farm
7/30/16 (at the Festival at the Farm)
Brookwood Community Farm is a nonprofit farm located in Canton, MA (right next to the site of our first Festival at the Farm). They’ve developed a partnership with The Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance, Project Bread, and the Mattapan Family Center to expand access to fresh produce in Mattapan using SNAP funding. Their new program will provide a weekly CSA bag to participating SNAP families at a fraction of retail cost- $25 for a month of fresh, local, organic vegetables. In order to do this though, they need to buy a new, larger cooler to be able to store the bags of produce on between visits to drop off sites in the city. We are proud that our $5,000 grant will help them make this important purchase.
