FOOD FOR ALL – Building local gardens to feed the hungry

Free garden start‐up funding for 50% share of yield
Laureen Blood

“Food for All” is a project of Triskeles that invites your organization to become part of a network committed to helping alleviate the growing hunger and poverty in our area. We will install beautiful raised garden beds at no cost to your organization. We will train you to plant and care for them through the first growing season, in exchange for a commitment from you to tend the beds and donate half of the produce to those in need.

Monthly forums are held on the 3rd floor of Molly Maguire's beginning at 7pm. Note, this venue is not ADA-compliant.

Their program model inspired both Steve and John to create their own version right here in Phoenixville.

They also have created the "Building Futures" program which partners with small local businesses to help mentor and teach the young men vocational skills. One of the current residents named Steve has been working …
