Impact statement
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to get more gardeners donating more food to more food pantries. For Good.

Project Details

What We Need
  • An easily understood visual aid that communicates complex information
  • A high-resolution version of the Infographic in the Organization’s preferred format
Additional Details

An infographic that can illustrate an entire problem that most people are not familiar with (garden food waste) and the solution in such a way that people will see that their donations have a far reaching and long lasting impact.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have direct access to the exec director, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a liminted infographic, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
