Faith Feeds seeks to alleviate hunger in Kentucky through provision of fresh fruit and vegetables to people who are hungry. This mission is to be achieved by: (1) Gleaning produce for distribution to hunger ministries, and encouraging others to donate a portion of food they grow to such ministries; (2) Participating in “community kitchen” events to preserve excess produce for later use; (3) Initiating and maintaining gardens on urban in-fill; and (4) Teaching people how to grow food. Learn more at www.faithfeedslex.org. Like us on Facebook to learn of upcoming events – www.facebook.com\FaithFeeds .
You can volunteer to help in many ways.

4. Assist in building and maintaining urban Friendship Gardens.
5. Assist with our annual heirloom seed sales [Feb – April]
