East End Food has grown to fulfill a true need in the local food community, working with farms to create new distribution channels for surplus produce. Our kitchen team helps farms turn produce into products through value-added processing. Some of these products return to the shelves at farmstands, others make their way into markets, restaurants and tasting rooms.
We also minimally process fresh produce from local farms to be distributed to schools, food pantries, senior centers and other institutions across the East End. When a farm becomes a Business Member with East End Food, they gain access to a comprehensive suite of services and support, including assistance in packaging and label requirements, connecting with new buyers and expanding distribution networks. Through our membership, farms can effectively scale their operations, increase their revenue streams and contribute to the sustainable growth of the local agriculture economy.
