Boston Local Food – a program of SBNMass

Leading the Local Food Movement in the Boston Area

Bring Back the Boston Local Food Festival!

Last week, SBN and the Boston Local Food team launched our largest campaign to date: Raise $20,000 in 45 days to bring The Boston Local Food Festival back to Boston for its fourth year!

The Boston Local Food Festival is a free, annual event bringing locally grown & sustainably produced food to Boston for one spectacular day of celebration, learning and relationship building. We believe in promoting “Healthy, local food for all,” and endeavor to bring important community events like the BLFF to our area on a consistent basis.

In line with our mission, we don’t accept any funds from non-local and non-independent businesses and interests in support of the festival. Our organization relies on the support of the local community and individuals like you.

So, we need your help to bring back the festival in 2013! We’ve partnered up with Boston-based business Fundraise.com to create a unique platform for this campaign.

If you’re passionate about local and sustainable food (which we know you are), and you love the Boston Local Food Festival, help us fund another year of the nation’s largest authentically local & sustainable food festival and farmers market event!

Please consider supporting our campaign at http://fndr.se/YGQ5! Any contribution is appreciated, however small the amount. Your support will be acknowledged in many ways and will go a long way in forwarding our cause. To learn more about our fundraiser or about sponsorship opportunities, visit sbnmass.org.

Together, we know we can make 2013 our best year ever.

Highlights from last year’s festival include:

  • Seafood Throwdown
  • Dozens of local vendors
  • Chef Demos
  • DIY Events
  • Live music & performances
  • Family fun
  • 40,000 attendees
  • Zero Waste: 91% of all festival waste diverted
