In partnership with the local food bank Mercer Street Friends, Allies’ Project Grow program is providing fresh produce for distribution to those in need and with less access to healthy alternatives.

This is the second year Project Grow has supported the food bank by sharing a portion of its harvest.  Last year’s total produce donation was close to 20 pounds and this year’s first produce donation of 27 pounds exceeds that amount.

TOTAL Pounds Donated, with more to come:
July 28, 2015  — 27 lbs
