Grow Food Shares

Grow Food Shares is building a more equitable local food system.

Nearly 3,000 Northampton residents can’t access the quantity and quality of food that they want. In collaboration with emergency food partners, food insecure residents, and community organizations, we lead programs that provide access to locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables where people live, work, and visit. And beyond transportation and financial barriers, we work to understand and address deeper barriers that prevent people from eating healthy.

The Community Food Distribution Project makes food available five days per week.

On-site distribution at Jackson Street School in Northampton is organized three days each week by Northampton Survival Center, and deliveries are made to 11 local sites twice per week by Grow Food Northampton. Food is available at all locations to area residents, even if they did not need help accessing food in the past.
