Nutrition ON a mission
Veggies and fruits give all of us the nutrients we need to stay
healthy. But at Papillion Urban Garden, they do a LOT more than that! Our community garden provides fresh produce to those in need, educates kids about nutrition and agriculture, and gives families an opportunity to create memories together. And every dollar the garden earns is reinvested into Papillion, to help our community
keep growing strong.
Food to Give
According to feedingamerica.org 1 in every 8 Nebraskans are struggling with Food Insecurity. There is not enough access to quality food sources and many food insecure households are unable to afford healthy options. The Papillion Urban Garden will provide fresh seasonal locally grown produce to families in need through donations to local food pantries. Proper nutrition plays an important role in the health and wellbeing of all families.
Food to Share
The Papillion Urban Garden will offer shares each season to the public for purchase. Each share will consist of fresh produce and other locally sourced products. Produce boxes will contain seasonal produce picked that week. All it takes is a visit to the Garden to pick up your box. This is a great way to get exposed to new types of vegetables and new ways of cooking. How cool is it to meet your farmers and watch the crop develop each week! You can even lend a hand and volunteer.
