What we do

North Quabbin Community Coalition staff load Wellness Shares for a June 2021 delivery as part of a collaboration funded by the state’s Opioid Task Force.

Quabbin Food Connector was created in June 2020 to serve as a facilitator and fiscal umbrella for projects in the North Quabbin region that nurture working farms, robust small businesses, and a thriving community.

  • We aim to widen local discussions about the root causes of food system problems, pushing against the “siloing” of concerns about health, farm viability, economic development, racial equity, climate resilience, and more.
  • We work to help rebuild the kinds of local and regional food supply chains that existed here and elsewhere before long-distance food shipping and large-scale supermarkets became the norm.
  • We seek ways to do this in a way that is fair to everyone–small farmers, local retailers and distributors, and eaters at all income levels. That’s what we mean by “bridging the gaps for fair food.
