Through funds donated at the 2011 Imagine the Possibilities‘ Fund-A-Need Auction, Bridgewell has been able to purchase 14 seasonal shares of locally grown fresh vegetables from a group of local farmers who belong to the Greater Lowell branch of the World PEAS (People Supporting Agricultural Sustainability) cooperative.

One share of fresh vegetables supplied by CSA/New Entry farmers can feed two people for a week. The 14 shares purchased for Pathfinder through the end of the growing season in October has provided sufficient greens for about 28 homeless diners per week, said Dave Robinson, program director of Pathfinder’s Drop-In Center and Apartments.
