GIVE UNTIL IT HELPS: Gardening At Night


[Detail from “Garden Of Earthly Delights” by HIERONYMOUS BOSCH]

The Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger recently teamed up with Groupon to raise funds for a community garden in the Francisville area of Philadelphia. The goal of the garden is to provide a bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables to local food pantries and soup kitchens, supporting their efforts to feed local children and protect families at risk for hunger. With funding for raised garden beds, seeds, equipment, and planting and distribution expenses, the Coalition Against Hunger can establish this community garden and help hunger-relief programs improve the nutritional quality of the meals they distribute. If you donate $10.00, it will be matched by the Pincus Fund for Hunger Relief (up to $500).  If they raise $500, the Coalition can purchase five raised garden beds, seeds, and seedlings to produce fresh fruit and vegetables. Each additional $70 will buy an additional raised garden bed to grow more produce for local food pantries and soup kitchens.  MORE
