Feedmore Breaks Ground At Community Kitchen Garden

Posted: Updated:

HENRICO, VA—Hunger-relief organization Feedmore will soon have more fresh fruits and vegetables thanks to a newly-planted garden at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.

Feedmore broke ground for its Community Kitchen Garden on Wednesday at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.

The organization will use the fresh produce in more than two thousand meals prepared daily by the Community Kitchen.

The Community Kitchen serves after-school feeding program and Meals on Wheels.

Recently, community needs have increased while donations have decreased, furthering the need for the garden.

Children helped celebrate the groundbreaking and unveiling of the new garden.

Last year the garden produced 6-tons of fresh fruits and vegetables. Organizers hope to produce as much, if not more this year.

This is the garden's fifth year in the community; it is run entirely by volunteers.
