ShareCorps - The Foodbank -Greenhouse Operations Coordinator
The Foodbank believes that no one should go hungry. in 2020 we distributed nearly 19 million pounds of food through our network agencies and numerous other Foodbank programs. The Foodbank is a results-driven team that makes a difference in the community while having lots of fun! The Foodbank's urban garden has 40 raised beds, numerous growing containers, three bee hives, multiple pollinator gardens, and an on-site composting facility to support our growing efforts and supplement our food stock with fresh, local produce. In the spring of 2021 a 6,000 square foot hydroponic greenhouse will be constructed to greatly increase the amount of produce grown and expand our operation to year-round.
