Spotlight On: 10 Tons in 10 Days
This post is written by Food For Free Intern Chelsea Westra. In the midst of this holiday season, we are grateful for the hard work and beautiful produce provided through the Boston Area Gleaner’s (BAG) second-annual 10 Tons in 10 Days event. While BAG is generally a major produce provider for Food For Free, this event was created to focus on providing specific produce for the Thanksgiving holiday. “[Food for Free] tallied how much they wanted and it was about ten tons, so we said we could make it in the ten days before Thanksgiving,” said Matt Crawford, Lead Gleaning Coordinator at BAG.
