Please don’t be shy, we have always been a community based organization, staffed by the same people we support, and our main reason for creating this blog is to hear more of what our community has to say.

      We hear you. We feel that while the Boston area doesn’t get enough help, we know outlying areas get next to nothing. I’m sorry we cannot expand our outreach beyond the Boston area; we can only afford to maintain one truck on the road at the moment, and it is busy around the clock. If you are willing to make the drive however, we encourage you to visit one of our Quincy or South Boston stops. We would be happy to load you up with enough food for your family, friends, and neighbors. We have run for 22 years on a shoestring budget, and the kindness of volunteers. To expand our outreach beyond Boston, we would love to supply anyone willing to drive food to the people in need we can’t reach ourselves.

    I think that it’s wonderful that you offer this service!
    Thank you, on behalf of those of us who do not qualify for Food Stamps, and fall short of eligibility requirements.

    This is such a blessing!
    Thank you, and may God richly bless you.

      Many thanks for the blessings! We feel everyone deserves healthy food, but affording a healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables is hard for anyone on a budget, even if their income exceeds eligibility requirements. It is a big part of our mission to provide sustenance for those deemed “too rich” for other forms of assistance.

    shame on the folks of my generation, born 1950, that just won’t give,share,count their blessings,pay poor people better,give a hand,buy some one a car,pay the insurance,say hey,I have plenty,let me share.Those who have let homelessness and hopelessness prevail.and hunger. shame on us and I apologize that I could not get the taker’s to give.So giving out string beans is good.jason got 6,000 pounds since yesterday,4,000 pounds onions,4,500 potatoes,1.000 carrots,2,000 lettus and 3,000 tomatoes, beautiful. I am over 60, let’s fix the world.

    I think what you are doing is amazing! I am wondering how you started? I live in the suburbs of DC and would love to start something like this in my area!! Would you mind giving me some advice on where to start? I own my own business and am no stranger to hard work and would love to do something that can really help people achieve a healthier lifestyle. Thanks!

      Come vist boston,see first hand. Very,Very hard work,50 pound cases,very dirty,cold,wet,hot.Truck driver needed,large trucks,not trailers,box.A budget of $2,000.00 a week, will take time to get going.Produce has 400 types,all with different problems,like a zoo with a virus,not just one body like humans,but fish,birds,reptiles,ect.It’s like becoming a Veterinarian,much harder than becoming a doctor.Ah,4am. 6 days a week,sometimes 7,like a farmer.BUT I love it because people have so much joy.How are you at politics? Lets get our Sister Obama to do this with our national guard,or Clinton,and lets feed the world,because we surly can.Millions of pounds of food get dumped in America, time to do something about it. I have years of knowledge of how. thanks,nancy jamison
