Got a Green Thumb? Volunteers are needed to Adopt-a-Patch in the Food Bank Garden

Adopt-a-Patch is a program at the Food Bank garden where volunteers grow vegetables for programs serving the needy in the Southern Tier.

Once again, the Food Bank and volunteers are teaming up to grow vegetables at the Food Bank Garden for hungry people in the Southern Tier. Volunteers from church groups, community organizations, and local neighborhoods will grow tomatoes, peppers, squash, beans and other fresh veggies in the gardenís 20 raised beds. We need your help.
