Healthy Shares CSA

CSAs are boxes of local produce that are delivered weekly to a central location.

We bring local produce into the homes of low-income families with subsidized community supported agriculture.

This innovative program enables people struggling with food insecurity to access healthy food through typical channels, such as through farmers' markets, community gardens, health centers, food co-ops, local stores, etc.—supporting both households and local food economies. In 2017, Project Bread subsidized CSA shares for about 1,100 families in East Boston, Malden, New Bedford, and Ware. This program continues to grow, and serves to increase food security in low-income communities while simultaneously strengthening the local food economy in MA.
