Attention gardeners: we need tomatoes!
The “Ton of Tomatoes” project aims to bring local, nutritious food to area residents who are in need by collecting tomatoes during the growing season, processing and freezing them, then distributing them throughout the year via the food shelf. The collection goal is one ton of tomatoes!
This effort is being organized by Grace Cottage Family Health and Hospital, the Townshend Community Food Shelf, and the West River Project. These groups will collect and process the tomatoes.
Please help by designating one or more tomato plants in your garden and donating what those plants produce.
To participate in the program, contact Grace Cottage Community Health Team member Bill Monahan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 365-3762.
