Yesterday afternoon, garden volunteers weighed bag after bag of produce and were blown away by the number they saw on the scale. It read 122 lbs.! Beans, kale, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes and corn all helped make up the largest single donation from Basin’s Backyard Garden to date. Garden volunteer, Sheila Renner, also added some tomatoes from her own garden to the mix.
The produce was then dropped off at the Bismarck Emergency Food Pantry. A recent article in the Bismarck Tribune highlighted the food pantry’s need for donations to feed the area’s hungry. It’s why garden volunteers thought donating there would be a good fit.
Bismarck Emergency Food Pantry volunteer, Bobbi Mitzel, was very appreciative and ecstatic when receiving the donation, she even gave the garden volunteers hugs!
