St. Vincent’s Farm Stand was started in 2009 with the support of Wholesome Wave to make healthful, locally grown food available to those in the community who need it most as well as its own employees, volunteers, and visitors. The farm stand is an example of St. Vincent’s mission of caring for the community, in particular the poor and vulnerable, and extends the services the hospital provides beyond medical treatment to providing access to healthy food and nutrition education. The farm stand features Cecarelli Farms from Northford, CT, and is located in the Medical Center’s parking lot, easily accessible by public transportation.
