Growing Food, Growing Hope


The other week, the Betty and Jim Holmes Food Bank Garden wrapped up another incredibly successful season. This special garden located behind Crossnore Children's Home provides all its produce to Second Harvest Food Bank, which in turn gets it out to food pantries, children and seniors' programs, and shelters across 18 counties of Northwest North Carolina.


This year, 1,020 volunteers donated over 3,000 hours to their time to the Food Bank Garden, bringing in nearly 4 tons of fresh food for our partner network.


This included over 1,000 pounds of okra, 1,700 pounds of tomatoes, nearly 900 pounds of squash, and nearly 2,000 pounds of cucumbers.


This gardening season has come to an end and the fields are seeded with cover crops for the winter. But the organizers at the Food Bank Garden will be looking for volunteers again in the spring... stay tuned.


Thank you to everyone who helps make this wonderful project happen.


Together, we are #feedingfresh and #feedingcommunity.
