  3. Food Link is addressing the same needs. Its staff and volunteers are working around the clock, seven days a week to alleviate hunger and waste in eastern Massachusetts.
  4. Remember LexFarm on GivingTuesdayNow. LexFarm has renewed its commitment of provide 10 percent of what we grow to those experiencing food insecurity in the MetroBoston region. We continue to work with two food-rescue partners, Food Link and Boston Area Gleaners. Donate here >>
