"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 2019, Hilltop Hanover Farm donated over 15,000 pounds of produce!
If there is an organization you'd like us to donate to, please contact our Food Donation Coordinator.
Grow A Row
Help us help our community!
Whether you intentionally plant an extra row, or just find yourself overwhelmed with the amount of summer squash coming out of your backyard garden in July, Hilltop Hanover Farm has launched a new program to help your excess produce get to families in need. Through our new 'Grow A Row' program, we schedule produce drop-off days for gardeners to donate their excess harvest. Hilltop then consolidates all donations and gets them to one of our food pantry partners for immediate distribution. So all of your extra produce, no matter how big or small the harvest, can easily get somewhere it is needed!
Sign up to get on our Grow A Row list. We'll send you information about produce drop-off days, plus all sorts of gardening, harvest, and post-harvest tips to help you get the most out of your garden this summer!
Hilltop Hanover Farm's 2020 Grow A Row program is supported by a generous grant from the Westchester Community Foundation.
The idea is SIMPLE. We feed the hungry with what is left in the field.
Sign up for group volunteer days and help us harvest excess crops from the field to donate to those in need.
