The Armstrong Food Initiative Society recently wrapped up its final harvest of giving for the year.

Produce sharing at the community garden averaged 265 pounds every Monday, with about 33 people accessing the produce. Food was also delivered to some seniors in the community as well as Abbeyfield House and Kindale.

“We have a lot for which to be thankful, a beautiful valley that produces plentiful and varied crops, good people who are willing to share their bounty and people who enjoy and value good food,” said Jill de la Salle, with the society.

The society thanks all of the growers who were willing to share their crops with others.

“We would especially like to thank Ben and Margaret Crozier, Pilgrim’s Produce and Trent Weins for their regular and generous support of this program,” said de la Salle, also thankful for all the volunteers.
