Our Covid-19 Response
The Food Project is monitoring the Covid-19 situation on a daily basis and our top priority is the safety and welfare of our staff, our youth, and the communities in which we work. Across the organization, we are following the guidelines of the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
More than ever, The Food Project needs your help. We postponed our annual fundraising event, which we rely upon to fund 12 percent of our operating expenses including our summer youth program. Covid-19 and the resulting global economic crisis will undoubtedly impact our revenue in many other ways. Please help ensure that The Food Project will weather this storm, and continue to be a key contributor to an equitable, local food economy by donating any amount to our Farming for Resilience efforts. Every dollar you give provides one serving of fresh and affordable food to your neighbors in need.
The Food Project Offices
The Food Project offices will remain closed to the public. Administrative and program staff will continue to work from home and can be reached by email or phone. You can find contact information on our Staff Page.
The Food Project is committed to ensuring that people, particularly those most impacted by food insecurity, have access to safe, fresh food. Our farmers will continue to safely work on our farms as a healthy, thriving local food system is more critical now than ever. We have instituted new food and worker safety procedures, in accordance with the most up-to-date recommendations from the CDC and public health authorities.
The Food Project is offering farmers’ markets in Dudley and Lynn this season in accordance with federal, state, and city Covid-19 regulations to ensure markets are safe for our customers and staff. Lean more.
Serve & Grow Volunteer Program
The Food Project is not currently hosting Serve & Grow volunteer groups. We look forward to welcoming volunteers to our farms as soon as it is safe to do so. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
