USDA Farmers to Families Program

Braintree Public Schools has partnered with the USDA Farmers to Families program to bring fresh produce to families in need. Our school nutrition team will be distributing boxes of fresh produce to families in need at Braintree High School on Fridays beginning May 29, 2020 through the end of June from 9AM to 11AM. There are a limited number of boxes available, so we only will be distributing until all of the boxes are gone.

If your family is in need, please feel free to stop by Braintree High School. When you enter, please turn into the main entrance and take your first right. You will see tables set up with a stop sign indicating the pickup location.
