Gaining Ground is a nonprofit Concord farm that grows and distributes organic produce for hunger relief. In 2020, over 127,000 pounds were donated to more than a dozen food pantries and meal programs in metro Boston. In a typical year more than 2,500 volunteers work with Gaining Ground's farmers to grow and harvest produce. This year, with food insecurity still running high because of COVID-19, we have been grateful to welcome volunteers back to the farm. For additional information or to volunteer, visit www.gainingground.org.
