‘Healthy Local Food for All’
SBN’s Boston Local Food Program strives to create a vibrant local food system, ensuring accessibility of healthy food for people of all demographics and economic backgrounds while supporting the growth of local food producers, farmers and entrepreneurs.
This includes promoting awareness regarding the benefits of buying local as well as creation of networking opportunities between food producers and buyers at the individual and wholesale level. Each year, we support hundreds of New England farmers and food and beverage producers while also engaging tens of thousands of members of the general public!
SBN is one of ten Massachusetts Buy Local Groups who are committed to the idea that knowing where your food comes from makes both good health and economic sense. Buy Local Group efforts have helped generate consumer awareness and demand for locally grown food products while improving access to these important food sources.
