Purchasing local food to support our community.

Farm To Neighbors

There are too many people in Connecticut experiencing food insecurity, including 1 in 8 children. One way we are addressing this is to purchase locally grown products from established and emerging farms to supply our neighbors with healthy food and support statewide agriculture.

How It Works

Established Farms

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.

Emerging Farms

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.
