Target Hunger Programs

Educational & Community Gardens

Target Hunger has three (3) Community Gardens that provide food as well as education about gardening and nutrition. The gardens give volunteers and clients the opportunity to grow nutritious produce to benefit themselves, their neighbors, and Target Hunger food pantries.
 
At The Willie H. & Gladys R. Goffney Community Garden, families and volunteers  are encouraged to “Adopt-A-Plot” where they can grow vegetables to feed their familes and share with neighbors.  
 
Both individuals and teams who volunteer in the gardens may assist in many ways such as: building garden beds; turning soil; weeding; planting; watering; harvesting; maintenance and special projects.   Many corporations, such as ExxonMobil, Shell, Ernst & Young, ConnocoPhillips and many others have found our garden work days to be a great way to encourage team building among their employees while accomplishing a terrific community service.
 
If you would like to volunteer or Adopt-A-Plot, please contact G'eral Crawford at (832) 767-1766 ext. 105 or email geral.crawford@targethunger.org
