Seed To Supper Helps Families Stretch Dollars

By Published On: July 27th, 2016

Thanks to you, families on a limited budget have the opportunity to learn how to stretch their dollars by planting their own garden and growing their own food.

Seed to Supper is a free six-week class offered by the Food Share in partnership with the Salem-Keizer Education Foundation. The classes give beginning gardeners the tools they need to successfully grow a portion of their own food.

Through the program, participants learn about planning, planting, and caring for their garden. In addition, everyone who attends receives a gardening booklet, free seeds, and an opportunity to have their own garden plot at one of the Food Share’s community gardens.

With your support, 110 participants will graduate from this year’s Seed to Supper program. 

“We are so excited for our garden this year! The Marion Polk Food Share gave us a ton of resources for healthy, home grown food.”- Renee Mata, Seed to Supper participant
