Did you know you can share your surplus garden crops with a local food pantry, where it will go to your neighbors in need ?
The “Share Your Surplus” campaign was launched by the Henderson Park Community Garden (HPCG) to encourage vegetable gardeners to donate their surpluses to the local food pantry.
Visiting the pantry and seeing the families who rely on it brings what is meant by “food insecurity” into sharp focus. More than 50 million Americans live in households that are considered food insecure. Georgia’s household food insecurity rate – 15.6% – is higher than the national average of 14.7%.
