Children’s Garden aims to donate 1,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to combat food insecurity

Good News Notes:

“In the wake of COVID-19 creating a new wave of food insecurity throughout Tompkins County, Ithaca Children’s Garden has stepped up and vowed to donate 1,000 pounds of fresh produce to those in need.

In April, ICG joined the Solidarity Gardens Coalition of Tompkins County, a coalition of local nonprofits, food banks, community gardens, and extension agencies that serve food insecure individuals and families effected by the pandemic.

ICG, no longer needing to grow produce for summer programs canceled due to COVID-19, has worked with the Solidarity Gardens Coalition and the Tompkins County COVID-19 Food Task Force to determine how the Garden could most effectively increase the amount of fresh, healthy produce available to the community.”
