We are always in need of volunteers at all of our locations. We can provide a safe & fun experience at our Pantry, Stores, Gardens or Holy Family with lots of different tasks and projects. We also have opportunities to work remotely, on garden projects at any location and for students as service learners.
Community Garden Project
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is working with Catholic Charities, Together, Inc., Whispering Roots, and Big Gardens to promote easier access and more reliable sources of local food supplies, especially fresh produce across diverse cultural requirements for Omaha residents.
Communities that have robust, sustainable, local sources of food are much more able to withstand unpredictable disruptions in food supplies caused by weather, health, or economic crises. In part that requires a reliable process for delivering available supplies to people who need them. In part it requires new local sources of food.
The Society wants to help any interested group to locate, build, plant, manage and harvest community gardens in their neighborhoods. These gardens will provide fresh vegetables and fruit, principally to food-insecure people in their neighborhoods and then to local food pantries or larger regional pantries. Individual gardeners will be able to harvest some of what they plant for themselves, but the primary goal for each garden is to provide access to local, robust, sustainable, culturally appropriate fresh produce for people in need in Omaha.
If you are interested in becoming part of a great adventure next spring, let us know now so you can be part of the planning process!
WE NEED YOU!
