Every year during the holiday season we raise money for our local food shelfs through Harvest for Hunger. The round-up program got started years ago when the Market’s former CFO Steve Moyer and Diana Brown of the Woodstock Community Food Shelf started a simple donation program. Years later the program has become a major fundraiser for food shelfs in Waterbury, Woodstock, and Reading/West Windsor. Donations are used to buy fresh produce for the food shelfs throughout the winter and spring.
This season we paid a visit to the Woodstock Community Food Shelf to see the program at work firsthand. Here’s the story behind Harvest for Hunger and a look at how your donations are making a difference:
Thank you for saying “yes” to Harvest for Hunger. Every penny counts!
