Food Bank Gardens

About the Food Bank Gardens

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to eat healthfully! Over 6000 individuals are served each year from Community Action Center’s Food Pantry.

The mission of the Garden Program is to increase access to nutritious and affordable produce at the Community Food Bank and other food pantries in Whitman County through cultivation, education, and empowerment.

The food bank gardens provide over 30 different varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables for community members in need of food assistance.

Environmental Responsibility

Organic growing methods are used in all crop production. Water conservation practices are applied through drip irrigation and bed mulching. Each garden location maintains a well balanced composting system that converts plant debris and kitchen scraps into healthy soil for future use.

Community-supported Agriculture

Your community food bank garden relies on volunteer and financial support to ensure all members have the opportunity to eat healthfully.

Volunteer your time and talent…

  • Host a fund raiser for the gardens at your business, church, school
    or community group
  • Research or write grants
  • Maintain hydroponic lettuce production
  • Help in the garden during growing season
