The St. Christopher’s grounds are now home to the Open Hands Food Bank Garden. In partnership with the Griffin Neighborhood Association, members of the church and wider community have planted a garden to grow food for the Thurston County Food Bank.
How Does It Work?
St. Christopher’s has offered up the land for this project of the wider community. Anyone can come lend a hand in the garden at the weekly work day, and the produce grown will be distributed through the Thurston County Food Bank.
St. Christopher’s is the satellite location of the Thurston Co. Foodbank for the Steamboat community; we’ll distribute much of the food right here in our neighborhood, and what we can’t distribute here will be taken to the downtown food bank.
How Can I Help?
Come lend a hand. Come dig in the dirt with your neighbors, weeding, watering, harvesting, and helping to feed families in need in our neighborhood. No gardening experience required.
All summer long, there’s a work day in the garden every Thursday from 5-7pm. Just show up with your gloves and a readiness to work; we’ll show you what needs to get done that day. The garden is located on the grounds of St. Christopher’s.
