OASHF- The University Church
The purpose of The University Church Community Garden is threefold: Growing Food - In these difficult economic times, many people are finding it difficult to provide food for themselves and their families. Often, fresh fruits and vegetables are simply excluded from consideration because of cost and so nutrition problems can develop, especially among children. We will cultivate fruits, vegetables, eggs, honey and fish and make these available through a variety of distribution methods to assist those in need. Growing Awareness - It is estimated by the Census Bureau that 24.7% of people in Toledo live at or below the federally-defined poverty level and yet many people are simply unaware of the plight of their neighbors. By becoming a public presence working to combat hunger and poverty, we will help made people aware of the very troubling situation in our neighborhood. Growing Compassion - Once an individual becomes involved in helping others, it is our experience that compassion grows and people are changed. We hope to grow compassion within our church family and among our neighbors.
