We envision a reality that allows any and all community members regardless of income to be able to feed themselves and their family in a way that promotes health and dignity. NNS works directly within the Greater Newburyport community to create systemic change and collaboration between organizations.

The Mission of Nourishing the North Shore is to ensure equal access to healthy, local food to all members of greater Newburyport in a manner that builds community, fosters connection, and promotes dignity and self-reliance.

Alice Waters
