Not only will you be led on a tour of the CSA farm, you’ll also engage in a discussion about the partnerships local farms maintain with The Food Bank, and how their healthy produce makes its way to underserved communities throughout western MA through our Mobile Food Bank program. We are proud of our longstanding relationship with area farmers, who partner with The Food Bank to ensure that everyone has access to healthy food, regardless of their circumstances. Last year, one million of the ten million pounds we distributed was grown right here in the Pioneer Valley by 28 local farms. All proceeds from the event will benefit The Food Bank of Western MA.
