Seeds of Hope Campaign to Raise Funds For the Kane Street Community Garden
Written by Ballzer on October 8, 2020
The Hunger Task Force of La Crosse is pleased to announce the annual Festival Foods Seeds of Hope campaign begins Sunday, October 11. This campaign helps sponsor the Kane Street Community Garden, the first program of the Hunger Task Force. Funds raised through Seeds of Hope purchase seeds, bedding plants, fertilizer, and to support our new ADA Accessible Garden area that will open in 2021!
Festival Foods hosts The Seeds of Hope campaign and encourages their employees and customers to help their neighbors through contributions. The campaign will run from Sunday, Oct 11 through Sunday, Oct 25.
Last year, nearly 30,000 pounds of produce were harvested from our garden. The Hunger Task Force distributes free of charge to garden recipients on-site and to our 118 partners that include food pantries, meal sites, and youth programs serving a vast number of those in need in our area.
Visit each of the Festival Foods locations now to donate at the registers! Festival Foods is located within the Village Shopping Center and on Copeland Avenue in La Crosse, Crossing Meadows in Onalaska, and on North Holmen Drive in Holmen. HTF very much appreciates Festival’s partnership in their efforts to alleviate hunger!
The Mission of the Hunger Task Force is: We are a voice of the hungry by harvesting community resources to alleviate hunger. The agency is located at 1240 Clinton St. in La Crosse, WI.
