Calling all local vegetable growers!

Beginning June 17
Wednesdays 9:00am to 11:00am
at John Jay Homestead

Bring washed vegetables to donate to local food banks.

Our victory gardens can feed our neighbors in need.

 

We are a group of enthusiastic amateur vegetable gardeners who want to make a difference in our local community during the economic turmoil caused by Covid-19. Just like the Victory Gardens during World War II enabled our grandmothers to contribute to food security, we wanted to find a way for our Victory Gardens to help our neighbors in need. Then and now, gardening is a patriotic act. We hope that you will consider joining our effort to harness the growing power of our collective gardens.

Following the collection window, all donations will be sorted and delivered to Neighbor’s Link, The Community Center of Northern Westchester, and the Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry. Even if you do not have a vegetable garden, we welcome your help with sorting and delivery.

We look forward to this opportunity to serve our community with your help.
