Beets, carrots, potatoes and peas from gardens big and small have been adding to the fresh content of our hampers. From July through October, we distribute an average of 5,000 hampers per month. That’s fresh produce in 20,000 hampers during the garden season because of ALL garden contributions!
As always we could not do what we do every day if it wasn’t for the generosity of volunteers and donors. For 20 years, BP, Chevron and TransAlta volunteers have lovingly tended the Garden of Eat’n and the POWER garden, harvesting more than 50,000 pounds last year alone!

When we can give food that is healthy, it is not just a gift for an empty tummy, it tells someone they matter and that we all want them to get out of the circumstances they are in by providing them with the best food possible.
