Help us kick-off Food “week” in Cambridge,while supporting access to healthy, fresh foods

Join us on Friday, October 19th as Food For Free hosts its annual Party Under the Harvest Moon.  This event will serve as a kick-off to a week of food-related events throughout Cambridge – all aimed at raising awareness of everything from agriculture to health & nutrition to hunger.

Food For Free rescues fresh food—food that might otherwise go to waste—and distributes it within the local emergency food system where it can reach those in need.

Through a combination of food rescue, farming, and transportation services, we give food programs year-round access to fresh fruits and vegetables, while our delivery program brings food directly to isolated seniors and people with disabilities.

Our programs address not only short-term hunger, but obesity, diet-related disease, and other long-term health effects of food insecurity and poor nutrition.

In addition, food rescue—also called salvage or gleaning—reduces food waste.

Our Party Under the Harvest Moon is an annual fund-raiser that helps support all of our programs.  Join us for delicious food and drink from local restaurants, live music from One Thin Dime, the opportunity to talk with Car Talk’s Ray Magliozzi and Executive Producer Doug Berman and Robin Young, host of Here & Now, all while helping get fresh, healthy food directly into the emergency food system.
