The collaboration between Growing Places and Seven Hills ASPiRE!, made possible in part by a grant from the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts, will provide a strengthened regional food supply system that distributes locally grown produce to those most in need in North Central Massachusetts. The Growing Places Produce & Home Delivery program has an established, community-based, food network that coordinates with local farms to facilitate the distribution of locally grown produce, connects farmers and in-need consumers, and reduces the carbon footprint through systems efficiency. In partnership with Growing Places, Seven Hills ASPiRE! Workforce Readiness and Employment participants will receive training, employment opportunities, and real-work experience processing local foods into final products for distribution to low- to moderate-income families. Thank you to the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts for making this transformational program possible!
