Development Team

Manager: Charlie Mitchell, 978-335-3875

 

Team Description:

The Development Team works with our local food system of food producers, local government entities, schools and nonprofits to set ambitious but achievable goals for our company and use creative, collaborative approaches to accomplish these goals. An example of this would be to find ways to attract more customers who are paying with food stamps, and contacting public housing units, schools and nonprofits to develop outreach efforts. If you like to think boldly and outside the box and are interested in things like nonprofits, food justice and social entrepreneurship, you belong on the Development Team!
