Dip Into Summer!

Dip into summer- I tried it I liked it!

With support and partnership with the Connecticut State Department of Education and End Hunger CT we launched a series of 'pop-ups' at free summer meals sites so families could dip and crunch favorite summertime crops!

Our "Dip into Summer" campaign with carrots, cucumbers, carrots, blueberries and more came direct from CT farms across the state!
