Partnering to Provide Food for Families in Need

Farm field at Drumlin

Our farmers are stepping up to fill a crucial need. And you can help.

The coronavirus has closed schools statewide, including those in Cambridge, where as part of our Farm-to-School program, Drumlin Farm provides public school cafeterias with fresh, sustainably grown vegetables for students, many of whom face food uncertainty.

We're collaborating with Food For Free and other hunger relief nonprofits to provide healthy produce for those students and their families.

Each week, Drumlin's farmers harvest greens from the hoop house and fields, collect stored winter crops from the root cellar, and gather eggs from our chickens. 

This bounty gets packed up for our partners to deliver as weekly grocery bags to families for whom simply having sufficient food in the kitchen can be a challenge—and a health threat.

You Met the Challenge!

Earlier this season, a generous donor offered to match every dollar contributed to this project up to a total of $25,000, and the response was amazing! Thank you to all who met the challenge. Your generosity is an inspiration.

And we aren't stopping there—we'll keep distributing Drumlin Farm-grown food through hunger relief organization partners through the fall and winter. Your continued support will keep the program going. Thank you!
