Friday, June 21 – Waltham Community Day Center

Speaker: Carolyn Montalto, Executive Director

Each Monday of the growing season, Land's Sake delivers produce to our newest hunger relief partner, the Waltham Community Day Center. Homeless shelters often receive donations from local grocery stores, but these donations often contain easily preserved food, not fresh produce. Due to the relationship between Land's Sake and the Community Day Center, our neighbors in Waltham have unique access to healthy food.

Friday, July 19 – Waltham Boys and Girls Club

Speaker: Erica Young, Executive Director

Throughout the summer, our Green Power students lead young Boys and Girls Club participants on tours of the farm, getting hands-on experience in the Education Garden and learning about healthy eating. Donations from Land's Sake's generous supporters help cover the cost of these field trips so that students can experience the farm free of charge.

Friday, August 16 – Community Servings

Speaker: Valerie Machinist, Manager of Nutrition Services

Through our Sponsor a Share program, Land's Sake partners with Community Servings of Boston to provide the same full size shares offered in our CSA program to those in need. Our farmers harvest the produce, and then our summer education students prepare and pack the shares for transport. Once Community Servings picks up the shares, they deliver them straight to the door of each family. Each family then has the chance to take cooking classes using their CSA shares to learn new culinary skills!
