Description
HHFB's Garden & Gleaning programs provide locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables for free distribution to those in need of emergency food assistance. The more volunteers, the more fresh food we can grow.  

No gardening experience is necessary.

Join us anytime during regular garden volunteer hours:
April through October
  • Monday 9-11 a.m.
  • Wednesday 5:30-7:30 p.m.
  • Thursday 9-11 a.m.
To check for weather cancellations or special volunteer events, including teen gardening visit the HHFB Garden & Gleaning calendar.

History:
Our Garden Program was born out of a continuing effort to increase the amount and nutritional quality of food provided to area food pantries and soup kitchens. To meet a rapidly growing need for emergency food assistance we have had to consider new ways to obtain food. Growing our own allows us to bring in varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables rarely donated to the food bank.
