One of our customers did an amazing thing recently.Five hundred pounds of winter vegetables were donated to the Martha's Vineyard Buys & Girls Club by Artcliff Diner, so families could have their own free farmers market.
The Artcliff Diner in Vineyard Haven purchased 500 pounds of fresh winter vegetables and donated them all to the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club in Edgartown, so parents could pick up some free produce along with their kids at the end of the day.

The butternut squash went the fastest.

The veggies were a big hit. After one day, all the butternut squash was gone. By the next night, most of the turnips, carrots and potatoes had also found new homes — this is all that was left for the following week:More than half the remaining vegetables were gone by the next night.
The Boys & Girls Club serves hundreds of families from all over Martha’s Vineyard, where one in four school-age kids is at risk of not having enough to eat. If you’d like to make a similar donation of healthy, fresh farm-raised food, please let us know. We’re always happy to help, because we know how good it feels to share the bounty.

Morning Glory Farm was recently honored for contributing 100,000 pounds of produce to the Island Grown Gleaning program since 2009.
