Have a green thumb? Considering growing a row for The H.E.L.P. House.
Leaders of the food pantry are asking community members with a garden to plant a row of vegetables to help feed families that are trying to make ends meet. The produce will be shared with families in the area that cannot get produce or afford to buy produce.
The H.E.L.P. House is one of the largest food pantries in the community, serving more than 200 families a week, a spokesperson said.
“The choice of what vegetable to grow is yours to decide. Make this a family project for the summer and show your children how it feels to work and harvest food to help others,” the spokesperson said.” A project such as this, that helps so many people, will be an experience your family will remember for years to come and will teach your children the rewards of helping others in need.”
Fresh produce can be dropped off at the H.E.L.P. House, 122 E. Center St., London, during open hours Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturdays.
