Our Haddock Chowder and Provencal Fish Stew have had a busy several weeks. The Small Boats, Big Taste program keeps on growing and we have an increasing number of wonderful partners. Take a look through this gallery and see students at Barnstable High School seeking out the the soups at lunch, families at a YMCA fun fair enjoying them, staff at Cape Abilities prepping them for distribution, and state and non-profit representatives celebrating the offerings.
Diogo Silva was one of many students at Barnstable High that sampled the chowder and stew from the Fishermen’s Alliance.

The Viprinos – a fishing family – were among dozens of families who turned out for the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day. Once a month we deliver five cases of our chowder and stew to the YMCA.
Dennis Council On Aging staff, Health Ministry and St David’s volunteers, and Cape Abilities staff put boxes of vegetables and soup and stew together to deliver across the Cape. The deliveries are part of Cape Cod Cooperative Extension’s Food Access Program, which received a grant through the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources. The funding was part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agriculture Marketing Service cooperative agreement with Massachusetts under the Local Food Purchase Assistance Cooperate Agreement Program.
