After extensive research, tedious planning, careful implementation, and continuous adjusting, the day that once seemed so far away, has quickly become the present.
Not only was this day so very special, as it marked our first harvest, equally impactful was the number of individuals in our community that were able to enjoy fresh, local, produce. We donated over 3,600 heads of lettuce to the Feed My People Food Bank! Feed My People is the only food bank in west central Wisconsin, providing food to more than 125 hunger-relief organizations in 14 counties.
Did you know that nearly one in nine people living in the 14 counties that Feed My People Food Bank services are food insecure including one of every five children?
If you would like to make a donation to the Feed My People food bank, please visit www.fmpfoodbank.org.
A special thank you to Menasha Packaging for donating all the boxes used to package our leafy greens!
