The growing season has ended for 2020! Thanks to generous donations from community members, and the tireless efforts from volunteers and staff, we brought 230 pounds of backyard bounty straight to the doors of residents at senior centers and low income housing sites.
We dramatically shifted our program due to the pandemic, and our new drop off system was a success!
Stay tuned for pickup dates and information when the snow thaws in 2021.
Fresh Food Connect utilizes technology to solve two problems — excess garden produce and food insecurity. If you have extra produce, you can sign up via the Fresh Food Connect app, and we ask that you drop off at a designated drop point.
Then our team of volunteers will collect the produce and bring it to senior centers, low-income housing and childcare centers.
