Food To Share
Food to Share – how you can help
In an effort to help increase the supply of fresh produce in our area, space is dedicated in Community Gardens in the Parks gardens to growing food that will be shared with those in need. The garden communities voluntarily work together to grow extra produce and the garden’s Communications and Outreach Volunteer committee work to coordinate the process. The fresh produce is shared with Food Distribution Agency Partners, who distribute it to local food pantries, soup kitchens and people in need.
