The Food Bank Garden
Welcome to the Food Bank Garden! Many food banks across the USA are lacking in fresh produce and many don’t offer locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables at all. But the Port Townsend Food Bank Garden is setting an example to strive for using land in the community that would have otherwise have gone unused.
They produce over 2,500 pounds of fresh food per year and it all goes directly from the garden to the food bank so that seniors and low-income families in the community can eat healthily. The garden is almost completely volunteer-supported by people who believe that everyone deserves access to healthy, fresh food. What started with one tiny tomato garden is now feeding delicious and nutritious food to hundreds of people.
