|Sigma Zeta picking apples|
Karen McKenzie of New Vienna, Ohio, partnered with Grow Food, Grow Hope. Volunteers went to the McKenzie home where they picked apples and donated them to local food pantry, Sugartree Ministries. The apples that were picked were well received by those at Sugartree Ministries who were already discussing fried apples, apple crisp, and apple pie, as well as biting into a few right from the box.
