Ready for Autumn at Pilgrim House

Early fall colors in our vegetable and herb garden signal the end of the growing season.

We are getting in the spirit of fall holidays and will distribute soup, oatmeal and other cold weather staples to our clients.

USDA Farmers to Families Program

Above is one of four weekly deliveries of 25 boxes we received through the USDA Farmers to Families Program during the month of October.

Each box of fresh produce, milk, dairy and processed meat contained food to feed a family of four for a week.

We are very thankful to Friendly Hands Food Pantry in Torrington for organizing the distribution for our area.

Community Food Production Garden

We are so thankful to Catie Aakjar for establishing a Community/Food Production Garden this summer as well as the many people that helped support and maintain it.

The bountiful 250-lb. harvest including tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, herbs, lettuce, kale and squash was all donated to Fishes and Loaves.
