Garden Project Fights Hunger

Posted: Updated:

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring announced that a large dent was made to fight hunger in 2013. Volunteers from the Hunger Free ND Garden Project donated more than 181,000 pounds of fresh produce to food pantries, soup kitchens and community organizations.

"It meets real needs that exist on a daily basis and fosters stronger community ties by bringing people together," Goehring says. "It is a vital partnership between those who have produce to share and those who receive it."

The project was started in 2010 through the Department of Agriculture, and will continue in 2014.
