During the pandemic, Sarah H Gordon joined the Hamden Food Security Task Force in Connecticut.  She participated via Zoom meetings with the task force, advocating for local produce for the food pantries, and mobile food pantries for those without private transportation.  In 2022, the Task Force took delivery of TWO mobile food pantries and hopes to be able to put some local produce on board.  Sarah is so pleased!  Despite another surgery last year, she is up and moving each day.  Sarah’s yard is full of food trees, food bushes, and a very productive fig plant.
