Boston Local Food – a program of SBNMass

Leading the Local Food Movement in the Boston Area

Welcome to Boston Local Food!

Check out our event calendar for upcoming events!

Boston Local Food works to grow a sustainable local food system that provides healthy local food for all.  As a program of Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN), we weave the values of local, green and fair throughout our events, activities and outreach.  As a Buy Local Group designated by MA Department of Agriculture, we coordinate with the 7 other groups in MA to increase demand from farms and to leverage local food efforts statewide.

We foster connections between eaters and local food sources, producers, distributors, restaurants, retail food businesses, government agencies and non profit organizations with a core interest in supporting locally owned independent food businesses.   Join us!
