July is here and so is the start of many exciting programs at The Hunger Coalition!

The beautiful HOPE GARDEN is in full bloom, harvesting fresh herbs, raspberries, peas, cilantro and lettuce this week, LUNCH IN THE PARK is feeding hungry kids at Balmoral Park, FRESH BUCKS is doubling SNAP participants’ money at local farmers’ markets, and our BLOOM trailer hit the road and is delivering healthy sack lunches and library books from The Community Library to outlying areas of our county.

In addition to all this, I’m excited to announce we are building a COMMUNITY FARM to grow community through food and engage youth to blossom into healthy, contributing community members. Read more below about this exciting endeavor!

When people are in crisis, they need proper nutrition…. and they deserve it. As an investor in The Hunger Coalition, you are helping to ensure that everyone has access to healthy, local food. If you haven’t already, I hope you will consider contributing to our SUMMER APPEAL CAMPAIGN, where you can double your donation and make a difference in many local families’ lives.

We will continue to work our hardest to raise awareness of our programs and to help anyone in need in Blaine County.
