Target Hunger Programs

Educational & Community Gardens

Target Hunger’s 12 Educational and Community Gardens give volunteer’s and clients the opportunity to grow nutritious produce to benefit themselves, their neighbors, and Target Hunger food pantries.  Located on borrowed land and two high school campuses in Target Hunger’s service area, the gardens stimulate social interaction and serve as an excellent tool for learning.  Target Hunger is committed to providing fresh, nutritious produce to those who are food insecure.  
 
At the Kashmere Community Garden, families and volunteers  are encouraged to “Adopt-A-Plot,” where they can have a designated bed to grow the vegetables that are favored by their family.  
 
The needs of Target Hunger’s gardens are a varied as the gardens themselves.  Volunteers assist with gardening activities such as turning soil and pulling weeds, planting, watering, harvesting crops, and performing basic landscaping duties. Target Hunger Gardens provide fun and meaningful large group volunteering experiences, and ExxonMobil volunteers have literally built our largest garden from the ground up.
 
If you would like to volunteer or Adopt-A-Plot, please contact Target Hunger’s Garden Coordinator, Sha Lewis, at 713.226.4953 ext. 229 or email sha.lewis@targethunger.org
