Community Harvest Project (CHP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission of building a healthy and engaged community through volunteer farming for hunger relief and nutrition education. CHP is dedicated to providing fresh fruits and vegetables to individuals and families experiencing hunger and food insecurity in Massachusetts. In 2017, CHP hosted nearly 8,500 community members who dedicated approximately 26,000 volunteer hours at our farms in Grafton, MA and Harvard, MA.
Together, we grew and donated over 265,000 pounds of fresh local produce to partner agencies including the Worcester County Food Bank’s hunger relief network, Community Servings, Hector Reyes House, Grafton Food Pantry, Boston Area Gleaners, Jeremiah’s Inn, and more. The food we grew provided over 1,100,000 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables for individuals and families who may otherwise not have access.
