A Happy Harvest
As part of our commitment to addressing red flag themes—like the growing poverty levels—identified in a Springfield Community Focus Report, SCG has partnered with Ozarks Food Harvest to put fresh produce in the hands of local families that need it. This produce supplements fresh food during the non-growing season for the volunteers who tend a community garden affiliated with SCG. In 2017, we distributed nearly 191,000 pounds of fresh produce to neighbors in both the Grant Beach and Weller community gardens combined.
With your support, we can continue to get fresh produce into the homes of Springfield families. To volunteer or to learn more, contact us.
