Meet Our Team
Kim and Stephanie are both Registered Dietitians, and have a combined 16 years working in food access in a number of settings. Most recently, through Mass in Motion New Bedford, Stephanie and Kim played key roles in creating a subsidized Farm Share Program (now the Mobile Farm Stand) and assuming management of the New Bedford Farmers Market, making it SNAP-accessible, increasing the number and diversity of vendors, and re-branding the market to ultimately double sales within the first year. They have continued to increase food access within New Bedford by Co-Founding Coastal Foodshed and setting up the city's first Mobile Farm Stand.
Dan was raised on and now operates a local farm in Dartmouth and has been farming on and off for more than two decades. Whether it’s been hay farming, or more recently raising eggs and vegetables for charitable donation, he has been involved in many aspects of both traditional and atypical farming.
Beyond an income, knowing farming supported him as a child and now nourishes him as an adult, Dan hopes to help grow local, sustainable farming to also support his community. Supplying more than just healthy foods, local farms support our ecosystem and economy and are vital to the overall health of our region.
