The gardens on the grounds teach the residents how to plant, grow and harvest food that they in turn are able to prepare and cook for their meals as well as provide produce for the Food Bank and to sell at the local Farmers Market.
What We Offer Through The Food Bank
Local Food Bank: a partnership with the Wichita Food Bank and donations provided by local donors, the women prepare and deliver food boxes monthly to families in and around Abilene.
There are also two gardens on the grounds that the residents learn to prepare the soil, plant, care for and harvest. The gardens provide fresh produce for the house, are sold at the local Farmers Market and supplement the food boxes distributed to the families.
