Feeding Our Community Through Our Community!
In the metro Boston area alone, there are 1 in 10 adults, 1 in 5 children and 1 in 3 senior citizens that do not know where there next meal is coming from. The GoodBox is confronting that hard reality with a real actionable solution – harnessing our community to feed our community and at the same time support local farmers.
The GoodBox...You Buy a Box...We Give a Box! By buying a GoodBox (or more!) that's filled with Fresh Healthy Vegetables grown and sourced locally you will help families desperately in need that are experiencing food insecurity. There is no shortage of healthy food in Boston but there is a gap in between those who have and those that struggle to feed themselves and their families.
BUY A BOX AND WE GIVE A BOX TO THOSE IN NEED...and More!
Fresh food for my family delivered right to me with even a bigger purpose!
So simple and so important. We buy vegetables every week and eat healthy and now we can buy a GoodBox and know that we're helping others in Boston to eat healthy too.
I donate regularly to causes I believe in. This is like supporting Oxfam but right here in my city, my community and for my neighbors that may need a little help.
The FoodCares Story.
FoodCaresBOSTON a program of Baraka Community Wellness began in the summer of 2016 and provides access to free fresh healthy food, educational resources and programming for families and children within public housing and low income communities that are experiencing food insecurity. Every week the families we help receive approximately 15 pounds of fresh produce and healthy grocery items at no cost. Specifically we are helping mothers, caregivers, and children that are faced with a myriad of socioeconomic challenges that create immense barriers to having equitable access or the resources to eating healthy and nutritious food. Since 2016 we have distributed 154,380 pounds of Fresh Health Food to 2753 family members including 1744 children in need. Through your support, the GoodBox helps us operate our program and help people in need while supporting "ultra" local urban agriculture and the growers within the cities of New England. There is so much Good In this Box! Feeding you, your family, the community and helping those in need!
