Grow a Lot, Give a Lot
Planting to fill food banks in Long Beach
2 years ago The Salvation Army had 350 clients seeking food assistance per month, that number has grown to more than 1700 per month.
To honor the mission of the Salvation Army and to support their weekly food assistance program, LBCAP is launching a new healthy food initiative “Grow a Lot. Give a Lot”. LBCAP will dedicate several garden rows solely to help restock the pantry of their neighbor The Salvation Army with fresh fruits and vegetables for distribution to over 1700 people seeking food assistance each month. This program will also help match up community gardeners, school gardens, farmers markets, and gleaning organizations to various local food banks.
