Seacoast Eat Local is a non-profit organization, and our work is made possible by passionate volunteers in the Seacoast. With diverse people offering their time and talents, we’re able to connect consumers with farmers and keep local food a vibrant aspect of Seacoast life.

Our volunteer opportunities include staffing info tables at community events, helping farmers unload at our winter markets, assisting in data collection for Seacoast Harvest, working with our SNAP/EBT & Debit program at farmers’ markets, and creating interest around many local food events.

Volunteers are inspired to help for different reasons… they may buy local food for environmental reasons, or they may delight in local food as a  home chef or as a nutritionist. Some people are motivated to support local agriculture because it is a great way to contribute to our regional economy, or they may want to preserve open land in the Seacoast. Whatever your reasons are for supporting local food, Seacoast Eat Local can use your help.
