Good Garden Food Drive
Goal: 100,000 lbs
Food security is one of the big issues of our time.
Only half the people in the world always have enough food.
And of that half, 17% face real food shortages that may result in malnutrition and even starvation.
Yet there is enough food on earth to feed all its inhabitants.
The Good Garden Food Drive is a program to get children across North America to understand the issues of food security in their community and around the world and help to make a difference by collecting and donating food to a local food bank. This is a year long drive so you can join in at any time!
Over 72,000 lbs donated so far.
Help your community and be part of the Good Garden national fight against hunger!
A team can be a class, a grade, a school, afterschool program, club or even the kids in your neighborhood.
Report how many items you have collected to put your team on The Good Garden Impact Map!
