What is the Neighborhood Food Project?
It’s America’s first neighborhood-based food donation program! Every two months, volunteers go door-to-door, picking up food from their neighbors. It’s the easiest, most effective, most empowering way to organize community support for local food banks and pantries.
The NFP was founded in Ashland, Oregon in 2009, and today there are more than 30 Green Bag programs around the United States!
The Town of Groton began a pilot NFP in 2014, and they are going strong adding new neighborhoods, collecting more food and truly making a difference.
In 2016, Loaves & Fishes decided to establish a program for Ayer, Devens, Harvard, Littleton and Shirley. With the support of grant funding, we too have been successful! In 2019, we added Dunstable to our service area.
Our hope is to continue to expand this effort, with your help, we can do just that!
