NHLC Participates in Harvest Campaign
Help us share your extra garden produce with those in need! The Harvest Campaign, a project of Minnesota FoodShare, helps stock food shelves with fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as whole foods and healthy meal ingredients. NHLC is a collection spot for excess garden produce this summer. Bring your fresh produce on Sundays and leave it in the box in the narthex. On Mondays we’ll deliver it to CES. You may also bring in produce during office hours, 8:30-1:00 M-F, and leave it in the flower refrigerator off the kitchen. Thanks for sharing! And spread the word!
