Food donations in 2013: Financial donations

Recent posts show how the Belmont Food Collaborative (BFC) works with other groups as part of our Food Assistance program. We also make financial donations to help those in need.

Please help us continue programs like these. Make a tax-deductible donation to the Belmont Food Collaborative.

  • SNAP matching. The Belmont Farmers’ Market matches SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps), up to $25 per shopper per Market day. In 2013, we matched $1898 in SNAP benefits, helping many families take fresh nutritious produce and other local products home to their families.
  • Belmont Food Pantry. BFC donated $1000 to help the Pantry support those in need, right here in Belmont.
  • Belmont Area Gleaners. We gave $935 to this group: $450 as a donation, and $485 to support their deliveries to the Belmont Food Pantry. They glean produce from farmers’ fields that would otherwise go to waste.
