Feeding The Hungry, One Plant At A Time

How we feed the hungry

GrowJoy, Inc is committed to helping alleviate hunger in our communities.

The idea behind our community service project can be summed up by the famous old saying: “If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime”.

Poverty exists all around us, including among some veterans and senior citizens. Churches and other organizations have started creating community gardens, and they often designate part of the garden as a place where needy people can learn to grow their own food. They give them a plot and teach them how to get started.

We are partnering with these types of community gardens and also with those whose main purpose is the donation of their harvest to the hungry, as well as with the community gardens that allow those with special needs to participate. Come harvest time, there are a lot of smiles all around, and plenty of good, nutritious veggies for people who really need the nourishment. And pretty soon after that, it’ll be planting time again.

Feeding the hungry through community gardeningWe think this is a great idea, and we want to promote it. Therefore, GrowJoy, Inc. is going to provide the plants for outreach programs at community gardens around the country. We have already started forming partnerships and are planning to do so with many more gardens in the future.

We love growing plants and we have always wanted to do something that will have a continuing positive impact on the world. We are very thankful that we have now found it, and we want to thank our esteemed customers for being a part of this. With your continued support of our business, you’ll be participating with us in feeding the hungry!

If you know of a community garden that could benefit from our plants, please email us at gardens@growjoy.com

We appreciate your business!

    Garden Harvest Staff,
    My name is Mark Schuch and I am the coordinator for what we are calling a Grow it Forward Garden. The website above has a link to photos of the garden in 2016. The purpose of the garden is to grow fresh organic (mostly) produce for two organizations one is called Downtown daily bread they currently feed a luncheon meal to about 100 homeless and needy families in Harrisburg Pa. The other is the local food bank in Lewisberry Pa. currently helping approx. 130 families with food assistance on a weekly basis. I stumbled across your site looking for a source of seed potatoes and sweet potato plants. perhaps we can partner with you. Our garden is 40’x80′ complete with drip irrigation and fenced for wildlife protection. feel free to give me a call 717-798-2173 or an email
    Thanks and Gods Blessing to you and yours!

    My name is Joelle and I am one of the leaders of the OPC Community Garden. Our garden began in 2011 and we are now in our 7th year. All of our produce is donated to a local food pantry in Winchester Virginia that serves 5000 people each year. The land that we use to garden is donated by a local farm. Our garden is all raised beds. Last year we had 22 raised beds and this year we have been gifted an additional 8 beds. The garden is run completely by volunteers. We donate between 1500-2500 pounds of fresh produce to the food insecure in our community. I found your site looking for broccoli cabbage and onion sets and then saw this post. I would love to have a conversation about using your plants in our garden this year. Thank you.

    Hello my name is Eric Smith. I’m working with the youth at my church, Bethlehem Temple MB Church, and we’re starting a community garden. All produce will be donated to a local pantry servicing over 500 weekly. I just found your site, searching for plants. This maybe last minute, but we will be planting vegetables this week Thursday the 8th. We’re kicking off our youth week and honoring our late pastor who we recently lost. If there’s a chance for a great partnership we would love tge opportunity. We have 3 raised 6×3 beds.
