The Food Project

The Food Project is a Dorchester based non-profit, working with over 150 teenagers and thousands of volunteers to farm on 40 acres of Greater Boston land. Youth participants gain leadership skills, agricultural and business experience, and employment opportunities. Food from the farms is distributed through Community Supported Agriculture and farmers’ markets, and is donated to local hunger relief organizations. The Food Project helps anchor Boston’s growing local food economy. The Boston Impact Initiative awarded a grant for youth oriented programming. Learn more
