| Frequently Asked Questions
The New Entry Food Hub aims to build long-term economic self-reliance and food security among farmers in eastern Massachusetts and their communities and to expand access of healthy and culturally appropriate foods in under-served areas through production of locally grown foods.
The New Entry Food Hub began as a cooperative in 2005 as the World PEAS Food Hub, with the goal to help local farmers connect with local consumers seeking fresh produce.
Most participating farmers then did not have a large enough volume, means of transportation, time, or English language skills to effectively access viable, living wage markets on their own. By forming a cooperative, small, beginning, immigrant and refugee farmers are able to combine their products to more efficiently and effectively connect with local consumers.
In June 2013, World PEAS opened a physical warehouse space, transforming the program from a cooperative into a true Food Hub. In 2018, to add clarity to the origin and mission of World PEAS Food Hub, it became the New Entry Food Hub after the parent organization New Entry Sustainable Farming Project.
New Entry Food Hub aggregates and distributes vegetables grown by local farmers who use organic growing practices. Additional fruits and vegetables are sourced from farms within 100 miles of eastern Massachusetts that use certified organic and other sustainable practices, including farms that use Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
