Garden for the Hungry

Michele Gore & Yvonne Thompson

The mission statement of the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour includes a commitment “to respond to human need by loving service” and “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth”

The “Garden for the Hungry” is part of our effort to carry out these goals. Last year we produced 6500 pounds of vegetables, grown using natural methods and no dangerous chemical fertilizers or pesticides, that we donated to the Salvation Army and to various food banks in Richmond and Berea that serve the homeless and hungry.

Proceeds from the sale of our vegetables at the Richmond Farmers Market will be used to purchase seeds and supplies to allow us to continue producing healthy food for those in need and to carry out other missions of our church.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food…” (Matthew 25:35)
