Mission: 

96 billion pounds of food are wasted each year. Fair Foods Inc is an evolution in the fight against hunger and poverty. Since 1988, we have transported daily truckloads of usable surplus goods from industry to low-income communities in eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. We recycle massive amounts of grocery-quality fresh food and high-grade building materials and bring them directly to the people who need it most. We rely on a commonsense ethic, a core staff of food distributors, and over 200 networked volunteers to get the job done, seven days a week. We focus on being cost-effective, resourceful, and thorough. Our business is to bring tangible change into the lives of thousands of families.

For the low cost of two dollars at the sites listed above Fair Foods will provide you with a very generous amount (about 15 lbs) of vegetables, fruits and possibly more. Food items provided vary each week.
