Garden Education & Outreach Coordinator - The Foodbank
The Foodbank believes that access to nutritious food is a basic human right and no one should go hungry. In 2022, we distributed over 15 million pounds of food through our network of partner agencies and other Foodbank programs. The Foodbank is a high-performing results-driven team that serves our community while having fun! Our urban garden boasts 40 raised beds, nutritious growing containers, multiple pollinator gardens, and on-site in-vessel composting facility to support our growing efforts and supplement our inventory with fresh, local produce. In the spring of 2021, construction was for a 6,000 square foot hydroponic greenhouse capable of producing 80,000 plants and expanding our growing season to year round.
