Real Food CT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to healthy food. We are connecting local farms and hunger relief organizations in our region to eliminate hunger.
Who We Are
What We Do
We run small farm Giving Gardens, collect surplus produce from local farms, and donate the food to local hunger relief organizations. We also train young farmer interns and run ongoing programs and events to support local agriculture and an equitable food system.
Join a group of volunteers ready to grow and donate over 100,000 pounds of fresh produce to our neighbors in need in 2023. There are many ways to contribute, on and off the farm.
Partner with Us
To the 30 farms in our area: You are the most important players in our local food system. Your work and efforts are invaluable. We have solutions to glean, collect, and purchase your harvest for delivery to local food pantries.

Real Food CT runs on the heart and soul of volunteers. Your donation will go toward the costs of our production operations, transportation of food donations, community education, young farmer interns, and the implementation of our Small Farm Model in underserved communities. Help us to build a sustainable food system that feeds everyone. Thank you!
