The Food Project

Striving to increase food security through creating sustainable, local food systems, The Food Project grows nearly a quarter-million pounds of organic food each year, which is then donated to area hunger relief organizations or sold through Community Supported Agriculture crop "shares" and at farmer markets in low-income neighborhoods.  Aiming to bring together youth and adults from diverse backgrounds to build a sustainable food system, the nonprofit engages over 120 teens and thousands of volunteers on an annual basis.  In Boston, The Food Project grows on plots in the city’s Dudley neighborhood and operates DSNI’s 10,000-square-foot greenhouse, which also functions as a community space and year-round learning center.
