LMNHS Food Hub Fundraising Drive 2022/23
Rising food costs and inflation have made it harder to buy food this year in Little Mountain–Riley Park. We need your support to continue our work and grow to meet the rising need for good food. This winter, we’re aiming to raise $10,000 by January 31, 2023.
At the Little Mountain Food Hub, it’s our goal to beat food insecurity. We’ve been growing fresh nutritious produce at the Yard Garden Harvest Program, distributing high-quality food to community members in need at the Food Distribution Program, and increasing food literacy by delivering gardening and food literacy workshops at the Riley Park Community Garden.
With your help, we can continue fighting hunger and keep building strong, resilient food systems in the years to come.
