The Food Bank needs your green thumbs to grow vegetables for the hungry.
Grow at the new Food Bank Garden! Adopt a 4’ x 12’ raised garden box, perfect for individuals, families, church and school groups and businesses. We garden from May through September. Last year Food Bank gardeners harvested nearly 1,200 pounds of produce. Click here for more information about volunteering at the Food Bank Garden.
Or, grow vegetables at home! More and more people in the Southern Tier are turning to emergency food programs for help. The Food Bank is encouraging local gardeners to plant a row of crops for the hungry in 2011. Why not team up with a friend or a neighborhood group? Your gardening skills and fresh vegetables can make a difference! Click here for more information.
