November Resource of the Month: Serve New England

Serve New England is a food buying coop that anyone who volunteers two hours a month can join. Serve's program has no eligibility requirements and is open to people of all income levels, ages and races. Anyone who is willing to give 2 hours/month of their time to help others is eligible to participate.

You can save up to 50% on high-quality, fresh foods by buying your meats, fruits and veggies through the Serve New England Program.

Here's how it works:

  1. Volunteer two hours
  2. Place your order (December 7th is the next order date) and complete a Community Service Receipt
  3. Pick up your food at your local site once a month (November 21 and December 19 are the next pick up dates).
For more information, go to www.servenewengland.org.
