From Cooking Classes and VEGOUT Mobile Markets to Gardening Education and School Farm field trips, NNS creates healthy food access and education for everyone, together. See our program below. Find out how you can participate, volunteer, or both!
VEGOUT Mobile Market
The VEGOUT Mobile Markets bring healthy, local produce to members in our community that often do not have access to these food choices.
June - October
There’s no better way to celebrate the summer harvest than by heading into the kitchen and creating healthy and beautiful meals to enjoy with friends and family. Join Nourishing the North Shore for our Summer Farm to Table cooking and nutrition classes!
School Food Recovery
School Food Recovery is a volunteer driven team that collects excess school foods from Newburyport Public Schools every Friday (sometimes Thursday) and delivers them to the Newbury Food Pantry.
September - June
Pitch In Project
Made up of first time farmers, the Pitch In Crew travels to NNS's partner farms each week to weed, plant, spread compost, harvest, and everything in between! The crew lends small farmers a hand during the busiest time of the season while getting kids involved in their local food system! The 2018 crew is funded by New England Grassroots Environmental Fund, thank you NEGR!!
July - August
Nourishing the North Shore’s Organic Community Garden is more than just a place to grow food, it's a place to grow community.
The Farm + Chicken Families
Nourishing the North Shore has partnered with Growing Humanitarians, a volunteer organization for families with young children, to take care of our 30 hen flock. Collecting eggs, feeding hens, and giving treats!
