Gardening for Foodshare

Bruce, one of Foodshare's great volunteers has been growing squash in a garden at The Church of St. Andrew The Apostle, an episcopal church located in Rocky Hill, for several years now.  Each year in September the butternut squash harvest goes to Foodshare.  Bruce picks up pallets and boxes from the the Bloomfield distribution center, and he and a crew of great volunteers pick the squash and fill the boxes.  Then a Foodshare truck comes to pick up the squash.  Bruce says "Last year was very dry, and we had only 1,659 pounds.  I am hoping for more this year."
