Buy fresh fruit and vegetables to add to what people get in the commodity food boxes
Match statewide programs that provide produce from local farms to eligible residents
Purchase seeds, soil, and other gardening tools for planting parties
Build and install community elevated bed gardens at the homes of people who do not have access to a community garden
Host a free lunch program for community members
