Winter, if not officially here, has provided us with a preview of coming attractions and Sandi’s Garden has succumbed to the cold weather. Not, however, before exceeding last year’s production! Our final tally was 314 pounds of fresh, organic produce. This is even more impressive when you realize that this year we grew large amounts of lighter Swiss chard, beans and hot peppers instead of heavy tomatoes. SHIM reports that the Food Pantry clients were very appreciative of our produce, especially the hot peppers.
SHIM’s Boaz Fields project helps its food pantry provide food insecure families with one of the most expensive items in a food budget: fresh, organic produce. BHCC once again, from the youngest on up, was an important part of this ministry to our brothers and sisters in the South Hills who depend on it to feed their families. A small plot of land made an important contribution to SHIM’s Food Pantry efforts. Thank you to all who, in many ways, answered the call to serve others.
