Rural Food Access & Health

Quabbin Harvest Shoppers

Many of our residents lack the resources to access fresh and healthy food. We are working to increase local food production and make healthy food affordable and accessible to all.

Action items:

  • Harness energy/resources from students and non-food organizations (YMCA, religious groups, health care) to address need for increased education/outreach about nutrition and existing assistance programs.
  • Connect food surpluses (farms, supermarkets, institutions) with food pantries
  • Help make the Quabbin Harvest co-op successful
  • Identify sites for small-scale food processing and storage
  • Increase support for local farms to sell food locally
