The effort has resulted in more than 10,471 gardeners donating 33,981 pounds of produce to hunger relief organizations throughout the region during the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost 12% of households in the Greater Philadelphia region are food insecure, with that number expected to double as a result of COVID-19.

PHS also partnered with Sankofa Community Farm at Bartram’s Garden and the Cooperative Gardens Commission’s existing network of experienced gardeners to provide additional education, mentors, and community resources to gardeners.
