First Sugartree food donation

Today Eric and Dessie delivered our very first food donation to Sugartree Ministries, which feeds more than 200 people daily and is stretched especially thin in this current economic climate. Monte Anderson and workers from the Wilmington College physical plant picked 234 banana peppers, 20 zucchini, nine squash and eight cucumbers, all of which were grouped and bagged individually to be handed out to families in need.

This is just a fraction of the food that will be harvested from the community gardens and the college farm, but it's a very good start. We are extremely grateful for Allen Willoughby and everyone at Sugartree for what they provide, and we are hopeful that we'll be able to supplement their outreach with some nutritious and locally grown food.
