Our valley thrives because our valley grows, and we're excited to keep growing in 2021. Food access and farm organizations across western Massachusetts have worked rapidly and tirelessly responding to the rising rates of food insecurity which have been exacerbated due to the lasting impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many are disproportionately impacted, including low income individuals and people of color. Show your support for farming and food justice in western Massachusetts by donating to local food access, farming and food justice organizations working to ensure that the food we grow here, reaches those most in need now!
Valley Grows Day is a collective effort among small, community-based nonprofits throughout western Massachusetts that are working to grow just and sustainable food systems for our communities. Wednesday, May 19th marks Valley Grows 2021, a day of giving and unity. Visit www.valleygrows.org to learn about other partner organizations who are participating, how they are working to address food insecurity and how your gift can help!
