During the growing season the CMC food pantry garden provides all the fresh produce needs for the food pantry as well as the meal program. The garden ensures that all who use the food pantry have access to an abundance of fresh, healthy food which might not otherwise be available to them.
The food pantry garden is run completely with the help of volunteers! All are invited to help in the garden; no previous experience necessary. Volunteers of any age can help out, and individuals, families and service groups are all welcome to volunteer.
