Blues for Food Fest
This is a community party that raises awareness about hunger and supports Seattle’s Giving Garden Network. The Giving garden Network is where people grow fruits and vegetables that help feed the hungry. Seattle has dozens of giving gardens; there are 64 of them located in P-Patches. During 2012 a combined total of 52,948 pounds of fresh, organic, GMO-free produce was donated to food banks, meal programs and shelters. That represents a total of 105,896 servings worth approximately $111,720. Seattle’s Giving Garden Network is a volunteer operation that builds greenhouses, sows seeds, distributes starts to the various gardens, plants gardens, weeds, waters, and tends the garden throughout the season. They also harvest the produce, and deliver the food to where it is needed.
