Local Farms and Community Gardens Support the Center

Colorful and nutritious crates of produce have been arriving at the Center over the past few weeks, thanks to the thoughtful efforts of local farmers and community gardeners. They are helping us in our aim to provide our neighbors in need with fresh food for their families.

Sisters Kate and Elena Wickersham have taken a plot in a community garden at Onatru Farm in South Salem. These Katonah-Lewisboro Girl Scouts have been planting, watering and tending their plot to grow vegetables solely for our food pantry.
Hilltop Hanover Farm in Yorktown Heights, provided baskets of fresh greens for the pantry as well.
