Our success comes from our local community. Nature's Garden Express is committed to giving back to the communities where we work and live. Because of our members, we are able to share with others.
According to the Hunger in America 2014 report, 1 in 7.5 people, or an estimated 755,400 people, in metro Atlanta and north Georgia turn to food pantries and meal service programs to feed themselves and their families each year. This includes more than 164,000 children and more than 64,000 seniors.
In 2014, we donated 76,586 lbs of organic produce to the Atlanta Community Food Bank, resulting in 63,821 meals. We donated over 20,000 lbs of organic produce to local churches and $1,000 to local schools, pet shelters, and environmental charities.
By eating sustainably, you're supporting good animal husbandry, growing practices that do not harm the environment and local food systems. We are committed to helping people, animals and the environment by choosing to support local and organic farms and food producers. We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to the community and strive to remain mindful of what is truly important.
