Feeding the hungry

Kol Ami’s amateur farmers include (left to right) Susan Peck, Calum McConnell, and Caroline Peck.

Members of Congregation Kol Ami in Cheshire are at it again: growing assorted vegetables in their gardens and using it to help feed those in need.  So far, they’ve donated 220 pounds of cucumbers and zucchini and other veggies to the Connecticut Food Bank in Waterbury and other neighborhood food banks.  In addition, in conjunction with Cheshire’s Boulder Knoll Farm Community Supported Agriculture program, Kol Ami’s Tikkun Olam committee delivers weekly donations of fresh vegetables to the Greater Waterbury Interfaith Ministry’s Soup Kitchen.
