One Click Can Feed the Hungry: Vote for the “Community Garden of Love”

Monday, June 18th, 2012

You can help feed the hungry in less than 5 seconds (we timed it) — and for free. Just vote for the “Community Garden of Love” every day in the Gardens for Good grant contest on Facebook, and Catholic Charities could win $15,000 to help feed the hungry through an innovative program dedicated to improving the health and nutrition of the New York community.

Community Garden of Love“, operated by Catholic Charities Community Services of Rockland (CCCSR), is making it possible for the local community to take advantage of fresh, healthy produce. Thanks to the garden, individuals who use the CCCSR food pantry are now able to feed their families with more than just canned goods and non-perishables — they are able to receive fresh greens, fruits and vegetables for free, ensuring that their family’s nutritional needs are met, and that their children are healthy.

“While we work in providing food to the community, we consider ourselves public health workers,” said Jeanne McGettigan, Catholic Charities Community Services  Director of Emergency Food Services.

Vote for the Garden of Love today — with just one click, you can give our community the healthy food we all deserve.
