Darien teens tackle food insecurity with healthy eating, organic farming
The Darien Times
By Brian Gioiele
Local teens Bruno Coppe and Kyle Bloomer spent the early months of the pandemic as volunteers, helping those suffering from food insecurity get necessary nourishment.
While the pair was pleased to aid those in need, what they learned was that most of the food being distributed to those families was mainly canned and processed. That was when they asked themselves: “Wouldn’t it be great if these families could grow their own products in the convenience of their home, regardless of the space?”
From there, Organic Barrow was born.
