Devens farm assists local food banks

September 30, 2016 by  

Food banks in the area are benefiting from the recent donations made by Little Leaf Farms in Devens, a new baby greens company that grows its produce locally and is open all year long.

Little Leaf Farms’ cofounder and Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Tim Cunniff, said the company wants to help those in the community whose struggle to afford and obtain food. It is developing relationships with those that deal directly with these people and is committed to helping the needier sections of society.

Cofounder Paul Sellow added that a program has been set up to donate fresh produce on a regular basis to Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry, Inc., Beverly Bootstraps, and the Greater Boston Food Bank, among others.

Executive Director of Beverly Bootstraps, Sue Gabriel, said that those who need assistance and have access to more nutritious food are better able to eat healthily and stay within their budgets.

Executive Director of Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry, Inc., Patricia Stern, added that being able to offer fresh, nutritious produce to people who would not be able to otherwise afford it on their own is very important. She expressed appreciation to the many donors and volunteers who make the Food Pantry possible.

Little Leaf Farms, which also sells its produce in several supermarkets in the state, might consider using various printing services to inform its customers of its contributions to the community.
