The Food Bank of Western Mass
Mountain View Farm and The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts work together to provide more local food to those facing hunger in our community.
Mountain View Farm leases a large parcel of land owned by The Food Bank. In exchange, we provide 100,000 pounds of fresh, local, organic fruits and vegetables to The Food Bank for distribution to front-line food assistance providers and people in need throughout our region.
The mission of The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts is to feed their neighbors in need and lead the community to end hunger.
