Food Harvest & Distribution
Community Gardens Harvest for Health
Whenever San Jose Organic Community Garden harvests come in, NWI sends Facebook, telephone, radio, and other community messages across town, inviting the families to come to get what they need. Needs and health assessment records NWI staffers keep for all family members help determine distributions.
Senior citizens and others who visit the clinics regularly, or participate in Zumba and other classes, receive produce, too. Nothing goes to waste.
NWI is now developing plans to expand food preservation efforts in one of the three garden buildings. The “Want List” for this effort includes an 800 cubic foot refrigerated storage unit and more supplies to teach home gardeners how to preserve more of their produce, too.
Feeding our Neighbors
As we expand our gardens, we open the doors for more people to eat healthy, locally grown foods. You can help us end hunger in Naco just by simply donating today.
