The Farm at Stonehill's Community Partners
Since its inception in 2011, The Farm has donated an average of 10,000 to 12,000 pounds of fresh, organic produce to our community partners each year. Our produce reaches the tables of about 3,000 individuals or families each season, 400 each week, who may not otherwise have access to fresh, organic produce due to a number of social, economic, and geographical barriers.
The Farm at Stonehill donates all produce grown to four community partner organizations each week:
- My Brother’s Keeper
- The Table at Father Bill’s MainSpring
- The Easton Food Pantry
- The Old Colony YMCA David Jon Louison Center
In times of surplus, The Farm is able to offer fresh food donations to additional partners in the community, including Evelyn House in Stoughton, and Catholic Charities in Brockton. We rely on our community partner's knowledge of the adults, children and families they are serving through their emergency food programs, homeless shelters and family centers.
90-95% of all produce harvested is made available through one of our community partners. The pounds of produce fluctuate from year to year based on climate and the varieties we plant!
