WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Wild Oats Market raised $450 for the Berkshire Food Project at its BBQ and Ice Cream Social held on Friday, July 13, at its store.

"We try to make a difference in our community by donating our time, skills and other resources to events and organizations that improve and support a better quality of life for all of us," Wild Oats chef Greg Roach said.

Established in 1987, the Berkshire Food Project provides free meals five days a week at noon at the First Congregational Church in North Adams. In the past, Wild Oats has contributed to the Berkshire Food Project’s biennial Empty Bowl dinners, its Thanksgiving dinners, and other BFP events. 

Several local businesses also contributed product to the ice cream social, including Bart’s Homemade Ice Cream of Greenfield; Blue Moon Sorbet of Quechee, Vt.; Maple Valley Creamery of Hadley; SoCo Creamery  of Great Barrington; and Tierra Farm of Valatie, N.Y.

Berkshire Food Project’s Executive Director, Valerie Schwarz, accepted the check for $450 on behalf of the organization.
