You can grow your own food. We can help.

Aiken to Eat Fresh Community Garden

Golden Harvest Food Bank serves the hungry in a 30 county area of Georgia and South Carolina.  A member of Feeding America, the national food bank association, Golden Harvest works with more than 300 partner agencies to provide food to the hungry.  Our partner agencies include food pantries, senior centers, and soup kitchens.  Fresh produce is often difficult and expensive to procure, but it is essential to a healthy diet.  Golden Harvest started the Aiken to Eat Fresh Community Garden as a way to produce fresh vegetables that go straight to our partner agencies to be given to the hungry.  The land was available next to our Aiken Warehouse, all we needed was the vision,  a lot of volunteers, some donated supplies and equipment, and a little bit of elbow grease.  Now beginning its second year, we are looking to improve our community garden so that it will produce even more high quality vegetables to feed the hungry.  The direct benefit of feeding the hungry is obvious, but we are also getting the community involved in gardening and charity work that will bear long term fruit.  The Aiken to Eat Fresh Community Garden is another way that Golden Harvest Food Bank and our local community volunteers are FEEDING LIVES TOGETHER.
