Grow Food Northampton’s food access work is building a more equitable local food system.

Nearly 3,000 Northampton residents are grappling with food insecurity and can’t access the quantity and quality of food that they want and need to be healthy. Guided and led by the Grow Food Northampton Food Access Advisory Committee,  a group of community members experiencing food insecurity, we conduct programs that provide access to delicious, culturally relevant, and nutrient-dense locally grown farm foods. We work to not just understand and address the barriers that prevent people from eating healthily, but foster community and celebration around local food.

SNAP Matching at Tuesday Market

Double your SNAP and purchase delicious farm foods from dozens of vendors at Tuesday Market and Winter Market.

Giving Garden

At the Giving Garden on the Grow Food Northampton Community Farm, we partner with local food pantries and meal sites to grow organic vegetables for their participants.

SNAP Shares at Crimson & Clover Farm

Grow Food Northampton makes it possible for SNAP recipients to access a CSA share at Crimson & Clover Farm, the “anchor farm” on the Grow Food Northampton Community Farm.
