I've volunteered with some coworkers a few times at this project. It's an organic farm on the outskirts of Boston that does a CSA and donates food to food pantries. And they focus also on getting city kids connected with agriculture. It's a wonderful program, and if you are in the Boston area and looking to donate a half day do do something good, this is a great opportunity.

You found some great links!

Food Pantries are a great resource and they're struggling right now and can use all the support they can get. Thanks for sharing where you volunteer Stoloniferous.

Excerpt from their home page:

The Food Project creates fertile ground for new ideas about youth and adults partnering to create social change through sustainable agriculture.

Our goal: sustainable, local food systems that bridge race, class, age, and more to ensure food security for all. Dig in!
