Calling all local gardeners and farmers

Killngly garden

Gardeners, farmers, schools, places of worship, youth and community groups, and businesses can make a difference by adding a row of seedbeds, or donating their surplus produce to Connecticut Food Bank and other local feeding programs.

Our Farm-to- Pantry program is currently on track for a 65% increase in the amount of fresh produce donated by local farmers this growing season. Local growers are partnering with feeding programs, as well as allowing us to glean their fields and orchards for healthy, nutritious food.  Learn more >

 

Connecticut Food Bank is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide nutritious food to people in need.
