HELP US GROW!
Since 2008, Harvest Now has established 50 grow-to-donate programs throughout Connecticut in local churches, temples, schools, + most recently, correctional facilities. Together we've produced tens of thousands of pounds of food for families in our communities that struggle with hunger, but this year we're looking to expand our reach.
