Beginning in 2008, New Entry Food Hub, formerly known as World PEAS, established a low-income food access program to ensure equitable access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Each year our produce reaches over 2,000 individuals in the greater Boston area, creating access to fresh, healthy produce that otherwise would not be possible for many residents. During 2020, New Entry Food Hub had the higheset demand ever for food access work. We delivered produce for approximately 30,000 meals (each share contains enough produce for 3 meals) through 11 partnering organizations.

To make this work possible, New Entry Food Hub partners with organizations serving disadvantaged populations to reach clients most effectively. At each organizational site, we operate a different model of distribution. Some partners operate a “farmers market” style for their clients while others use the produce in meals prepared on-site.
If you are affiliated with an organization that serves low-income clients and would like to increase food access through your organization, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-654-6745 to explore partnership opportunities.
Thank you so much to our previous and current partners working together to increase food access in eastern Massachusetts!
