Fair Foods: Two-Dollar-A-Bag
Fair Foods operates the Two-Dollar-A-Bag program, which distributes food at more than 20 sites — churches and schools — around Boston. Residents can buy as 12-pound bag of seasonal, mixed produce, ranging from potatoes and organic bananas to fresh spinach and mangoes, for $2. The Two-Dollar-A-Bag program is located every Friday from 3:30 – 5:30 pm at the First Parish Dorchester Church (next to Mather School).

The Honeycomb Cafe is open! Located on Savin Hill Avenue in the former site of the Savin Scoop ice cream store, this new restaurant offers a variety of coffees, teas, breakfast items, and sandwiches with fast, friendly service.
The food is delicious. I had the O-T-B BLT sandwich. Tasty! Food components are sourced from local farms and partners. The menu (items may vary) also contains gluten-free options.
Be sure to visit soon!
