Commitment to community and the fight to end hunger have become synonymous with Boot’s Farms. Since 2017, the Boot family, owners and operators of Boot’s Farms, has sent truckloads of fresh produce including leeks, greens, kale, green onions, and squash, to Daily Bread once a week throughout the growing season.
As part of Daily Bread’s Farm to Food Bank program, they have generously donated 804,498 pounds (about 36,4915 kg) of fresh vegetables to ensure those facing food insecurity have access to healthy, nutrient-dense foods.
“Booths Farms believes in supporting those in need. We are very grateful for the work Daily Bread does and are proud to partner with them in helping our neighbours in need” – Marianne Boot
In commemoration of the Boot family and their commitment to Daily Bread, we would like to share this warm and hearty recipe, from our Daily Bread Kitchen, made with squash from their farm.
