THE BLUE BARN FARM SHARE PROGRAM
Blue Barn is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2015 by Hingham's very own Kaysea Hart. Its mission is to support local families and local farms. Nearly 50% of those at risk for hunger in Southeastern Massachusetts earn too much to be eligible for government-provided emergency food assistance, and it is this demographic that Blue Barn seeks to help. As one beneficiary of Blue Barn’s farm share program wrote:
The share is unbelievable. I’ve been trying to work on my own health and the health of my family by eating healthier food but it has been difficult because it’s very expensive to buy organic, local foods in the markets. This is good food. When my kids eat this food they are nourished and they’re full after eating it. I feel like I’m healing them from the inside out.
