Volunteer

We are a volunteer organization with no paid staff.  All of our planting, garden maintenance and harvesting is performed by garden volunteers.  We have been fortunate to have attracted a number of civic, social, philanthropic, religious and social service organizations that work in the Garden.

Who Benefits

Mitzvah Garden KC produces annual yields in excess of 10,000 lbs of produce all of which is given way to local food pantries.  With the help of our many funders, sustainability and the concerns associated with our global/local footprint have been incorporated in garden since its inception.

Our Garden

At the present time, The Mitzvah Garden donates all of its produce (approximately 10,000 lbs annually) to area food pantries. The Mitzvah Garden is the only provider of locally grown fresh produce to these pantries which serve literally hundreds, if not thousands of needy families that have no food alternatives.
