Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm & Environmental Center, Inc. accepted a $25,000 check on Wednesday from MBIA Foundation, to support and continue fresh produce donations to the neediest of our community.
"In 2010 Hilltop Hanover Farm donated 4 tons of fresh produce to area food pantries, food banks, soup kitchens and homebound seniors," said Helen Brady, President, Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm. "The receipt of this generous grant from MBIA Foundation will allow us to continue and strengthen our commitment to the residents of Westchester County."
Hilltop Hanover Farm is a 187-acre Westchester County owned crop farm and environmental center, located in Yorktown Heights. The farming and educational classes are managed by the Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, in cooperation with the County of Westchester.
The Friends are holding a gala benefit for the farm on Oct. 21. Harvest Moon Evening tickets are on sale now at www.hilltophanoverfarm.org.
