"Thanks to a new local program, thousands of pounds of fresh produce were available this summer free of charge to families in need."
"The volunteer-run organization provides the people of Newburyport, MA and surrounding communities with access to affordable, fresh produce—and a chance to grow it, perhaps in their own dooryard."
"On Oct. 8, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation awarded $50,000 to Nourishing the North Shore, a food equity initiative and collaborative effort of the Newburyport Health Department, YWCA of Greater Newburyport and the Newburyport Learning Enrichment Center."
"We are very aware of all the people in the community that need support but when you can actually make it happen and it happens in a bigger way than you ever dreamed, it is beyond exciting," Davis said. "But underneath all of the what we do, is the why we do it and if we can remember the why; its about dignity and justice and food equality, then everybody can participate."
"The group is going to spend the summer firming up agreements and collaborations with other organizations currently providing food to low-income populations, hoping to make food more accessible by transporting it to central locations and offering pick-ip times via mobile farmers markets that are more convenient for working families."
