"Food Justice is communities exercising their right to grow, sell, and eat healthy food. Healthy food is fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally-appropriate, and grown locally with care for the well-being of the land, workers, and animals. People practicing food justice leads to a strong local food system, self-reliant communities, and a healthy environment." - Just Food
Hilltop Hanover's Farm-to-Pantry program helps food pantries and other emergency food programs make fresh, nutritious, locally grown food available to families and individuals in need. The farm serves over 20 community partners throughout Westchester, including food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. In line with our mission statement, a minimum 10% of produce grown is donated. However, we are excited to say it is often much more! In 2016, Hilltop Hanover Farm donated 13,000 pounds of produce!
If there is an organization you'd like us to donate to, please contact Michelle Graham.
The idea is SIMPLE. We feed the hungry with what is left in the field.
Sign up for group volunteer day and help us harvest excess crops from the field to donate to those in need.
