50 pound WHEAT Donation just the first of the growing season

The Watson Fellowship Garden is now in full bloom o BOOM! and so begins the days of harvesting fresh vegetables for the CT Food Bank.  The first run of produce to W.H.E.A.T of West Haven happened this week and yielded approximately 50 pounds of squash, various root vegetables, beans, and greens.  To understand how that feeds people, we can break it down to 4 pounds of food lends to roughly 3.5 meals.  This one trip will provide 43.75 meals.
