71% of the people we serve live in poverty. Nearly half of them have had to choose between buying food and paying for utilities, rent, mortgage or medical care.
by Andrew Morehouse, Executive Director at The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Roaming Farm in South Deerfield, MA. The owners, Steve & Julie Chalfant, have supported The Food Bank for many years. Nearly six years ago, they started raising Scottish Highland beef cattle on their bucolic farm. This breed of cattle is a slow-growing breed, which is known for producing tender, flavorful meat. This year marks the first year that they are selling their natural pasture-raised beef. While visiting the farm, I bought some of their meat; and it is delicious.
More information about their farm, their cattle and their products can be found on their website www.roamingfarm.com. If you check out the site’s price list page, you’ll notice two “Good Deed Sampler Packs,” which not only provide you with outstanding local beef, but also help supply needed food to The Food Bank at the same time.
We’re very grateful for Steve and Julie for supporting The Food Bank’s mission and the most vulnerable members of our communities.Comments Off
