Farm to Home Program
Eligible participants will receive one delivery of free food each month directly to their homes with a value of approximately $50 per month. Choices of healthy and fresh foods will come from Mass Food Delivery, located in South Deerfield, MA, who source their products from farms and producers throughout Massachusetts and the northeast region. Participants will be able to order from an online storefront system which will allow them to choose the items contained in each delivery. This program will be entirely free to each participant, however, because of funding limitations, the program will be limited to 400 participants. Every attempt will be made to distribute these slots equitably throughout the LifePath catchment area. If interest exceeds available slots, individuals will be placed on a waitlist. The funding for this program is anticipated to provide monthly deliveries through March 2023.
For more information or for an application, contact Athol Council on Aging at 978-249-8986 or visit LifePath’s web page for online application.
