They are partnering with the local Peterborough Food Pantry to help to supply fresh and nutritious food choices to area families with low income.  This is a pilot program that could provide a great example to other food pantries on how local farmers and organizations can partner to make local healthy food options available to those of all income levels.

Also, they are collaborating with The Well School, a private K-8 school in Peterborough, to provide them with a farm to school program.  They will manage a farm site adjacent to the school property and conducting farm education classes with the students throughout the school year.
