Heritage Gardens provides thousands of pounds of quality fresh produce every year to several food banks and soup kitchens in the Torrington-Winsted area during the spring, summer, and fall.
We believe that even the least fortunate in our communities need (and deserve) access to quality, fresh, and nutritious vegetables.
Our donations help to stretch the budgets of both the organizations and their clients, as well as increase the availability of nutritionally dense foods to those that may be forced to forego them because of expense.
Over the last several years we have served the following hunger-relief organizations:
The Open Door Soup Kitchen, Winsted
The Methodist Church Food Bank, Winsted
The Community Soup Kitchen, Torrington
The Connecticut Food Bank, New Haven
If you are a representative of a local hunger-relief organization, contact John to discuss how Heritage Gardens can help meet the needs of your organization and your clients.
Heritage Gardens also partners with local produce retailers and other food businesses to offer the freshest and highest quality in-season produce available.
Our business partners provide us an additional revenue stream to help finance the Food Bank Farm project and serve as willing ambassadors of our mission to the general community.
In 2016 we partnered with the following businesses:
The Health Food Corner, Winsted
The Act Natural Health and Wellness Center, Torrington
