Grow Food

How the Burlington Food Bank meets the needs of families in our city.

The Burlington Food Bank not only works with local farmers and accepts fresh produce donations, but we also grow fresh produce on our seven Community Garden plots that are located in The City of Burlington Community Garden on Maple Ave.

We are planning to grow a plethora of vegetables, fruit (tomatoes!) and herbs this in 2023. 

We are looking for people to help consistently with watering and weeding all spring/summer. We will also be planting out some transplants and direct seeding in the Spring and could have some help with that too. 

Please send us a note if you’re interested in helping with this. We are very excited to be able to provide fresh community-garden-grown food to our clients again. We would like to thank our previous volunteer Coordinators that graciously helped out the Burlington Food Bank and families in our community and managed the gardens for the full season.
