Through the work of Lynn Grows, we aim to expand existing food access points for low-income residents and elderly residents in Lynn through the following activities:
Expand and support strong use of existing farmers markets, farm stands, and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares in the Lynn neighborhood through marketing and outreach.
Continue to promote existing markets and CSAs
Develop a more robust campaign to raise awareness of new markets and opportunities in the city
Ensure that new markets and opportunities expand to areas that would increase ease of access via public transportation, walking, etc. and are culturally relevant
Develop a community wide resource available to the public that lists all food access points throughout the city, including Hunger Relief Organizations, farmers markets, stores, etc.
Work with institutional partners in Lynn to identify food access points throughout the city
Update Lynn Grows website with new resource information to share with the public
Launch awareness campaign to share resources with the Lynn community

Contact email@example.com if you’re interested in staffing a food systems information station at some of our events throughout the year (Summer - Central Square Farmers market, West Lynn Market, Community Lunch; School Year - Washington Elementary Food Festival, Ingalls Elementary Food Festival). We will share information about local businesses selling local produce, garden sites, farms, farmers markets, mobile markets, work for share opportunities, school garden support, etc.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if know of a community hub where a market might be beneficial for residents and community members.
