Several garden volunteers got together at noon today to harvest some lettuce, spinach, kale, beans and herbs to give to the Burleigh Emergency Food Pantry.
This was the third donation made from Basin’s Backyard Garden through the Hunger Free ND Project.
Shirley Fox, Burleigh Emergency Food Pantry co-chairman, says they have been exceptionally busy this year trying to meet everyone’s needs.
“Last week we had 88 people who were in need of some food. And we are running short on everything here – even canned goods,” Fox says. “We always appreciate when we receive fresh food donations like this. It’s not something we get in very often.”
