Your excess becomes another’s bounty.
During World War II, Victory Gardens were a way for everyday folks to help with the war effort. Today most people garden for the joy of it and eat the fruits (and veggies) of their labor. But what to do with the overabundance of lettuce or carrots? If your next door neighbors can’t use any more zucchini, we know some neighbors who can. Bring a basket or bag of fresh food to us and we’ll see that it’s put to good use. Help us fight hunger by donating your surplus garden produce to our Victory Gardens program.
The concept is simple. When you grow more than you can use, bring your surplus to us.
Did you know that visits to the Bellingham Food Bank continue to rise, and that 50% of our clients are children and seniors? Please help us provide fresh and nutritious food to our neighbors with a donation from your very own Victory Garden.
You can’t imagine what fresh fruits and veggies can mean to food bank families.
