Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Newton Community Farm
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation recently donated to Newton Community Farm. The funds will be utilized for the purchase of a farm vehicle, which will serve to broaden their reach and assist with the sale and donation of locally sourced produce. This vehicle will play a vital role in transporting produce, helping to enhance accessibility for individuals enrolled in numerous food assistance programs, as well as bolster the Newton Food Pantry’s efforts.
