Purchasing local food to support our community.
Farm To Neighbors
There are more than 400,000 people in Connecticut experiencing hunger so we’re purchasing locally grown products from established, emerging, and socially disadvantaged farms to supply our neighbors with healthy food and support statewide agriculture.

How It Works
Connecticut’s agriculture industry is a key part of our state’s identity. By tightening our ties with established farms we can provide more nutritious food, reduce food waste and stimulate the economy.
Small-scale farmers across Connecticut are providing for their communities every day. Emerging farms help us keep products fresh, provide culturally connected foods, and reduce fuel costs.
Purchased products are transported throughout our charitable food network in a variety of ways. Bulk quantities of food pass through Connecticut Foodshare’s warehouse and are distributed to our partner programs through their normal ordering process. Smaller quantities of food can be transported directly to partner programs either by the farm, the pantry, or a Connecticut Foodshare volunteer using Feeding America’s MealConnect platform.
