Thanks to the help of Blooming Prairie we acquired a $3,375 grant that allowed us to buy supplies and develop an education aspect to our donation garden directly across the street from the Pantry. The garden is maintained by staff, summer youth workers, and volunteer power. The main objective is to bring fresh nutritious locally grown produce to our clients table. Everything that comes from the garden is counted, weighed, and distributed to our clientele. We are in the works of developing an educational aspect for youth or people that would like to know more about growing and gardening in our community.
