Two Dollars a Bag
Our signature program provides large bags of mixed fresh produce for a suggested donation of two dollars. We operate Two Dollars a Bag five days a week, distributing food at over twenty sites in churches, schools, and public housing and senior centers across Boston. Check our schedule to see when we are in your area.
Each bag offers about twelve pounds of mixed fresh produce, ranging from potatoes and organic bananas to fresh spinach and mangoes. Our "dignity of a dollar" philosophy makes Two Dollars a Bag unique among hunger relief programs. Rather than supplying only emergency hunger relief or imposing income requirements to provide aid, we aim only to make your hard-earned dollars go further towards providing healthy weekly groceries. We have no eligibility requirements, no registration, and no ID checks. Take as many bags as you need for yourself, friends, or family. Come even if you don't have money; we have never turned anyone away.
