On a personal note: I purchased some plants at the sale and am happy to report that they are thriving! My family enjoyed some basil (from a plant purchased at the sale) in our spaghetti last week, and the marigolds are brightening my backyard patio. I can’t help but smile when I see the cheery flowers in my yard. The plant pickup was so smooth. Thank you for your support of the Food Cupboard.

In June, the Cupboard served 178 families. Volunteers delivered food to 65 of those families. They also distributed 109 track out bags for families with students who are without access to school meals.
During one week alone at the end of June, they harvested 92 lbs of vegetables, herbs, and fruit for clients! The harvest included tomatoes, zucchini, basil, blueberries, yellow squash, collards, peppers, turnips, carrots, beets, cucumbers, chard, beet greens, and kale.
