|About||We are a non-profit business start-up that sells fresh produce and quality meat at affordable prices.|
|Mission||Help Bay Staters eat healthier by selling supermarket quality food at fast food prices.|
Deerfield Foods is a market-based solution which helps Bay Staters eat healthier. By radically reducing the costs to $1.30 per individual meal, we sell supermarket quality food at fast food prices. We accomplish this by eliminating overhead costs. We utilize volunteer labor and are not accountable to shareholders or investors because we are a not-for-profit operation. Our profit margins are low, and whatever money we make goes towards expanding the business and making it self-sustaining. Eventually, Deerfield Foods will pay for itself. That is to say, if all goes well, our customers will eventually fund the business themselves. No outside donations will be needed.
Many organizations bring down costs by dispensing low-quality products. We make no such compromise. The food we sell is the same food Deerfield Academy students eat every day in their dining halls. Fresh or frozen, it is nutritious and delicious. Furthermore, we deliver the food directly to the communities we serve. By partnering with local community leaders, including churches and community organizers, we can identify and get to know our customers at an individual level.
Despite having non-profit status, we operate in many ways as a traditional business. Our customers purchase their own food and thus hold us directly accountable. Our products are tailored to directly meet our customers' high standards and demands.
Deerfield Foods is based on Vermont's Middlebury Foods and Chicago's Top Box Foods. Collaboratively, the two programs have successfully served thousands of people, demonstrating that it is possible to sell quality food at affordable prices. With the help of the Middlebury Foods team, we have developed a model in Massachusetts that we believe will play an important role in the national movement to fight food insecurity.
