Newtown agency 'digs deep' to get food for those in need
A Newtown agency is digging deep to get food for those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
Real Food Share is growing its food at its community garden at Sticks and Stones, where volunteers prepped beds to plant foods like kale, potatoes, onions and carrots.
The agency delivered around 800 pounds of fresh food to food pantries in town last year. It says it hopes to donate 10,000 pounds by the end of 2020 due to the expansion of facilities, more volunteers helping out and a $15,000 grant from Sustainable CT.
The grant matches every donation put forward. Founder Sean Fitzpatrick says the best resources for hyper-local food can be found right in our communities.
