Cooking and eating should be joyful acts.
A meal should have vegetables and fruit that are in season, fresh, organic, and come from local farms.
In a future in which everyone can share in these joys.
The founders of Digger Foods started selling local food to low-income people in Boston in 2017. That year, Cathy Wirth, then Director of Agriculture for the Trustees of Reservations, launched the Trustees Mobile Farmers Market. She hired Philip Messier to manage the market in 2018, and Bonny Tsang joined the crew the next year.
In 2022, Philip, Cathy, and Bonny formed Digger Foods with the hope of sharing the abundance of Massachusetts farms with the people of Brockton.
The Digger Foods mission is to make local, organic, and seasonal food available to everyone there. In September 2022, we launched a local food delivery program in and around Brockton. Our goal is to provide food-insecure people with the best fruits and vegetables from nearby farms, all at discounted prices. This way, everyone can experience the joy of cooking and eating locally.
