Your Garden Can Help Soup Kitchen

By on April 24, 2014

Verona’s service organizations often call for donations of canned goods and prepared food for Toni’s Kitchen, the soup kitchen that operates out of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Montclair. Now you can help with your garden, too.

Toni’s Kitchen is encouraging people to plant a row in their vegetable gardens for it. Food banks and soup kitchens often find it very hard to get fresh food, and “grow-a-row” movements have sprung up around the country to fill the gap. “Growing your own veggies or herbs and donating them to Toni’s is a great way to give back to those in our community who are in need,” Toni’s Kitchen says on its Web site.

And if you bought more vegetable seeds that you can use at home, you can also donate those to Toni’s Kitchen, which will pass them along to volunteers who have space to plant them. For more details, see the food ministry’s Web site.RowCover
