Urban connections to farms

A local organic farm, not far from a small city where hunger is an issue, planted extra crops to help feed those in need.

The Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) helped two food pantries, Capital Roots and the Comfort Food Community, mobilize volunteers to harvest fresh fruits and vegetables. Once harvested, the produce was transported and distributed through the food pantries.

ASA rallied additional volunteers to glean other fields for donations to the food bank.
