1 in 7 people in Massachusetts lives with food insecurity, yet more than 30% of the food grown on farms is never harvested. Boston Area Gleaners rescues fresh food from farms and gets it to people in need. After 15 years of service they are growing their operation with the construction of a new site in Acton. The new site will service even more people in need through an additional 10,000 feet of cold storage and 6,000 feet of dry storage. The new location will operate year-round and increase food distribution by an estimated 4.5 million pounds annually.
