If there are more tomatoes than needed this year, please consider donating some to the “Ton of Tomatoes” project, which is bringing local, nutritious food to area residents by collecting tomatoes during the growing season, processing and freezing them, and distributing them throughout the year via the Townshend Food Shelf.
Drop off tomato donations (nearly ripe is best) at the following locations and times: main reception desk, Grace Cottage Family Health, 185 Grafton Road, Monday to Friday 7 am to 5 pm; or West Townshend Country Store, Route 30, daily, 7 am to 7 pm. Provide a name so the organizers can offer a thank you.
“Ton of Tomatoes” is a collaborative project of Grace Cottage Family Health and Hospital, the West River Community Project, and the Townshend Community Food Shelf, with support from the Vermont Food Bank. These groups are collecting, processing, storing, and distributing the tomatoes. They are already well on their way to the goal of one ton!
