Our 7th grade Youth Give Back students visited Fairgate Farm in Stamford this week. They helped harvest crops, plant flowers and prepared the grounds for winter. Farmer Pete taught our students about food deserts and the way that Fairgate provides fresh produce to an under-resourced area.
Our Youth Community Fund students visited Filling in the Blanks and packed nearly 900 bags of take-home weekend meals for local students.
