Church Awarded Grant to Work with Bug Hill Farm and Food Pantry
Our church has received a grant of $12,000 from the Stackpole-Hall Foundation to support a collaboration with Bug Hill Farm and the Food Pantry. This is seed funding to get the project off the ground over a two year period. The grant will bring together young people and adult volunteers from the First Congregational Church, St. John’s Episcopal, local schools, and from Food Pantry families themselves at Bug Hill Farm to help owners Sam and Charlotte Perkins plant, tend, and harvest vegetables for the Hilltown Churches Food Pantry.
