Party Under the Harvest Moon“: A fundraiser for the Produce Rescue program run by Food For Free.

Music. Food. Local famous people. Fun. Tickets are $60 each; $25 of the ticket price is tax-deductible. See their Web site for more details.

Our Farmers’ Market works with Food For Free. We have facilitated the donation of food from Market vendors to Food for Free for five years.  At the end of each Market day, vendors can donate unsold produce and baked goods to Food for Free, whose volunteers collect the food and donates it to local food pantries, meal programs and shelters in the greater Boston area.  In 2012, our vendors donated 6805 pounds of food.

From their Web site:

Produce Rescue is the heart of Food For Free’s work. By rescuing fresh food that might otherwise go to waste, we reduce food waste while guaranteeing access to fresh produce for emergency food programs. By prioritizing fresh fruits and vegetables, our programs address not only hunger, but also nutrition, obesity, and diet-related disease.
