GRANBY, Conn. (WWLP) – As inflation continues to raise the costs of groceries across the United States, local organizations are teaming up to fight food insecurity here in western Massachusetts.
Rachel’s Table hosted a “Gathering and Gleaning” event at Oxen Hill Farm in Granby, Connecticut. ‘Gleaning’ is the gathering of grain and produce left behind after the harvest. Rachel’s Table, along with other organizations under the ‘Growing Gardens’ program, collected the produce, this time over 300 pounds of sweet potatoes, and will distribute the resources to families in need.
