Fresh From The Heart
Food connects us as a community and builds each other up in times of need. Nothing is more true than Calgarians who, every year, come together to grow vegetables for their neighbours in need. Large or small, every donation from a garden makes an incredible impact. When we can add fresh produce to a family or individual’s hamper, we are helping to build their resiliency. It is critical to eat well when you are in crisis so when we can give fresh-from-the-garden vegetables it tells someone they matter. It shows them we want them to get out of the circumstances they are in by providing them with the best food possible.
From July through October, we distribute an average of 8,000 hampers per month. That’s fresh produce in 32,000 hampers during the garden season because of ALL garden contributions!
