New Entry has worked for over 20 years to establish a model of local, regional, and national programming that strengthens local food systems by supporting new farmers. We serve and collaborate with the people, communities, and organizations in Massachusetts, the Northeast, and beyond.
This year, despite all of the turmoil and uncertainty, New Entry instead choose to be of service and leverage our resources to confront the weaknesses and inequities in the food system and double down on our mission to improve access to local and regional food. Our foundational work in farmer training and support continued in earnest. We doubled the number of incubator farmers at Moraine Farm, transitioned our programming online and reached more new farmers across the regional remotely. Our Food Hub expanded the CSA and launched new collaborations with our food access partners to bring weekly deliveries of fruits and vegetables to those most in need. Our national programs supported farmer training organizations to share COVID-19 adaptation strategies and our annual FIELD School virtually reached over 250 participants. And we accomplished so much more. To learn more about these initiatives, our programming, and a comprehensive overview of the year, our 2020 Annual Report is now available.
