Fairfax, VA – June 6th, 2017 – Food for Others, like so many food pantries across America, is focusing on receiving healthier donations for their clients. The organization would like to provide healthier options that people already enjoy. To gauge preferences, Food for Others surveyed clients on their fruits and vegetables of choice. After reviewing the survey results, they realized the majority of produce requested could be grown in a community garden.
On June 22nd, 2017 at Peace Lutheran Church in Alexandria, Food for Others will break ground on their first garden where they will be growing the produce requested by clients. All produce grown in this garden will go to families in need in Northern Virginia. Should an individual have extra produce in their own garden, or an interest in starting a garden for Food for Others, please consider partnering with the organization to serve the community.
If you would like to sign up to assist in constructing this garden please register on Sign-Up.com.
We are having a special produce food drive at the Shoppers Food on Pickett Road on Saturday, July 22nd, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We hope you can come by, donate produce and support a store that supports Food for Others and our community.
