Feeding Island Families with Local Produce
NRP is working create a food secure Nantucket - NRP connects people with the services they need via a cooperative network of providers.
Did you know?
- 26% of Nantucketers and 1 out of every 2 Nantucket school children experience food insecurity
- 300 people served annually via the Nourishing Nantucket food box program
- 55,000 plates of food sourced from local and regional farms via Nourishing Nantucket
Nourishing Nantucket and Pip & Anchor provide a box of locally-sourced, seasonal produce to 80 Nantucket families each week. The NN program provides island families who are experiencing food insecurity with the same healthy, delicious vegetables that are available to Pip & Anchor's customers.
The program also contributes to the island's growing agricultural economy by purchasing directly from Nantucket farmers. Your donation to Nourishing Nantucket both feeds island families and supports the development of a more sustainable food system for Nantucket.
Reaching our goal of $54,000 will fully fund Nourishing Nantucket through February 2024.
