Gardeners Help End Hunger in Their Communities – EcoLocalizer

Gardeners End Hunger - Basket of vegetables

Growing food is a fundamental human activity and part of our social legacy that leads naturally  to sharing the abundance with our neighbors. Planting extra edibles and donating the surplus for those in need is not only a simple way for gardeners to contribute to alleviating hunger, but it’s also a way to feel a real connection to your community.

If you have any space at all to grow vegetables or fruit, you can have a significant impact on not only reducing hunger, but also on promoting better nutrition. Fresh fruits and vegetables are expensive when you are struggling to make ends meet and feed your family, but they are essential for better health and proper nutrition. All that is required is that you grow a little extra and donate what you don’t need to your local food bank.
