You can grow your own food. We can help.

Target Hunger Kashmere Community Gardens

Target Hunger is a hunger relief organization that operates a system of 10 food pantries and 15 community gardens.  Our main garden - the Kashmere Community Garden - has 60 family beds that are 4' x 10 ', and 21 group beds that are 5' x 40'.  Local food-insecure families adopt and maintain a bed and eat what they grow and donate the surplus to Target Hunger.  The larger beds are adopted and maintained  by corporate and civic groups, with all the produce going to Target Hunger.  Produce from our community gardens is distributed to food-insecure people through our system of 10 food pantries.

Families benefit by having fresh produce in their diet and by becoming actively involved in beautifying and improving their community.  Volunteer groups benefit through team-building volunteer activities.  School children benefit by providing the gardens with seedlings through the "Watch Us Grow" Seedling project, whereby elementary students plant and grow seeds for transplate into a Target Hunger garden.
