The Giving Garden

“Partnering with East Lyme Giving Garden brings incredible value to our Food Center in New London with their fresh, local, high-quality vegetables. The produce that ELGG provides makes its way from their garden, to our Food Center and then the real impact happens;  21 towns, to 63 agencies, to 15,000 individuals. Stop and think about that incredible impact we achieve between just our two organizations!  1 in 4 children in NL County are currently food insecure and together we’re genuinely making a difference.”

- Scott Umbel, Vice President of Community Impact at United Way of Southeastern Connecticut
