Hartford Food System

Established in 1978, Hartford Food System’s mission is to increase food security for those living in Hartford, Connecticut. Groups can help Hartford Food System with their mission through the Grow Hartford Youth Program. The program held during the academic year teaches groups about food access and food justice in Hartford, and allows groups to participate in public speaking workshops and learn various leadership skills. The summer program allows groups to work on the urban farm where they will learn about urban agriculture, Hartford’s food system, and ways to fight the hunger and malnutrition of the food system.
