This September, we honored Hunger Action Month by fighting hunger the Bread for the City way: through a long-term solution that involves growing nutritious food and providing it to the people in our city who need it most.
It costs us $35 to maintain each tree in our orchard throughout the year. The trees grow fruits like apples and Asian pears — which we use to stock our food pantry and distribute in grocery bags for thousands of our city’s families in need. What’s great about it is that every tree can feed about 10 families for only $35, and that’s healthy food straight from the earth!
So many of our amazing supporters took action! And guess what?! 147 trees found new sponsors! That’s nearly 1,500 families who have healthy, nutritious meals because of you.
You don’t have to wait until next September to sponsor a tree! We have a total of 422 trees with sponsors this year. We still have 148 left in the orchard waiting to be sponsored! Sponsor your tree today!
