Sponsor Farm Share Registration Now Open!

Bowdoin Street Health Center and The Food Project are partnering up yet again to offer health center staff as well as their counterparts at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and other Longwood Medical Area facilities the chance to help sponsor the Farm to Family program.

The sponsorship program, now entering its third year, has been extremely successful.  In 2011, staff from the Longwood community purchased 82 shares which helped to distribute over $13,000 in weekly boxes of farm-fresh produce to families in the Bowdoin/Geneva community.

“It was a terrific and easy way to enjoy locally-grown produce throughout the summer and fall seasons, with the added benefit that a portion of the cost went to help other families in the community have access to the same fresh fruits and vegetables,” says Steve Fischer, BIDMC’s Chief Financial Officer.  “Plus, it was a lot of fun being surprised by the variety of produce that would appear in your box from the farm each week.”

Registration for Bowdoin/Geneva families will begin in May.  Please contact Maura Beaufait for more information at 617-754-0026 or mbeaufai@bidmc.harvard.edu.
