Lewis Farms and its customers have faithfully offered their support to Bread for Life for as long as he can remember, said Eldon Hafford, Bread for Life executive director.
Located at 384 Belleview Ave. in Southington, Lewis Farms is owned and operated by Greg Ali, who also owns Ali’s Nursery in Plantsville. He describes Lewis Farms as a one-stop destination for farm fresh produce, flowers, baked goods, gifts and ice cream. Ali said he strives to offer primarily Connecticut- or New England-based products, including cheese, ethnic foods and more. As a self-described entrepreneur, he is still expanding the store’s culinary offerings.
Hafford said Lewis Farms is generous in donating food items to Bread for Life, the program that feeds people in need in Southington. Lewis Farms’ customers often put their change in a can on the counter, which has resulted in a steady stream of donations for the organization.
“BFL is a unique program that addresses hunger and has helped feed a multitude of people right in our community,” said Hafford. “As the demands increase, we remain committed to serve those who need our services so that no one may go hungry. What we do is only possible because of the ongoing support of our community and generous businesses such as Lewis Farms.” – Submitted by Bread for Life
