What We Do

One out of seven people in Berkshire County and all of Western Massachusetts suffers from food insecurity, i.e. hungry or at risk of being hungry. Berkshire Bounty fights food insecurity by collecting excess fresh produce, dairy products, baked goods and meats from supermarkets, farms and owners of fruit bearing trees. We deliver that food to pantries and other distribution organizations in South County and Pittsfield which then make that food available to those in need.

Relying on the generous donations from many people and grants (click on Financial Supporters in the drop-down menu under Partners), Berkshire Bounty also purchases and distributes nutritious food that typically is not included in the excess food we regularly collect from food donors. We currently buy food from Guido's, Wohrle's Foods, Tory Hill Farm, North Plain Farm, Berkshire Bounty Farm (name coincidence!) and High Lawn Farm.
