In partnership with the Central Virginia Food Bank (CVFB), Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens created the Community Kitchen Garden. This is the second season Lewis Ginter has grown vegetables for the CVFB. Lewis Ginter makes weekly deliveries of produce to the CVFB, and the annual goal is to deliver 10,000 lbs. of produce. CVFB uses the vegetables for its Meals on Wheels and Kids Cafe programs. The partnership will save the CVFB around $18,000, while providing citizens with a local source of fresh, healthy food.
