Hunger Garden Growing & Call To Help PA Food Banks

HARRISBURG – State lawmakers, hunger advocates, community volunteers, and master gardeners from Penn State Cooperative Extension held at news conference at the state Capitol to mark the beginning of another growing season. Since its inception in 2010, the Capitol Hunger Garden has produced 800 pounds of produce annually for low income residents. Lancaster County Sen. Mike Brubaker, who founded the Legislative Hunger Caucus four years ago, urged every Pennsylvanian to do their part to fight hunger in the Commonwealth. With one in seven Pennsylvanians at risk of hunger, food banks throughout the state continue to see high levels of demand for emergency food assistance. Those interested in donating time or supplies to the Hunger Garden are encouraged to contact Sen. Brubaker’s office at 717-627-0036.
