D&R Greenway Partnering with Aunt Chubby's Luncheonette to Support Community

Marino and proprietor Lyn Farrugia of Aunt Chubby's receive the first delivery of food from the Charity Gardeners at St. Michaels Farm Preserve. Larger deliveries have followed weekly.

 

In response to the pandemic, D&R Greenway established 32 socially distanced garden plots at St. Michaels Farm Preserve this past spring that are now producing a remarkable bounty. Six of the 32 reserved garden plots are for charity. Hopewell resident Corinne Egner is managing the schedule for gardeners who donated plants and seed, and have given generously of their time to weed, water and harvest.

Every Wednesday since July 15, the fruits of their labors have been donated to about 30 families in need via Aunt Chubby's Luncheonette, a Hopewell nonprofit. The Victory Garden donations are part of a broader effort by Aunt Chubby's to operate an outdoor free food pantry to provide nourishment to the Hopewell Valley community.
