what we do

Our focus is on the health and wellness of our community.

MFFC focuses on food access, physical activity, youth development, utilizing our parks, gardens, and rivers (built environment), and empowering residents to advocate for the changes they seek by employing or providing stipends to lead our community projects, volunteering, bringing awareness to the challenges that our community holds, and providing educational guest speakers at our monthly community meetings.

 

Additionally, we have a year round youth group focused on these activities. Our youth group also lead activities of their own such as Mattapan on Wheels and the youth-led farm stand.
