a 5K fundraiser
The Food Ark and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle
Dorothea Dix Park
8:00am - 10:00am

My name is Meredith Brown, and I am a junior at Broughton High School. I am involved with my school’s chapter of the Food Ark, a group which works to promote healthy food options and to fight food insecurity. We have worked closely with the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, and it has become a personal goal of mine to promote their principles. With that in mind, I am currently organizing a race to raise money for the organization’s goal of teaching those who live on a strict budget to shop for healthy food items and how to run a garden of their own! Join us on June 10, 2017, for the Food Shuttle Garden Gallop 5K to benefit the Camden Street Learning Garden! We welcome everyone of every age! Run it, walk it or even push a stroller. All proceeds will go to the garden!

101 Donald Ross Dr
9:00am - 12:00pm

Come dig in our garden! With nine rows and 20 boxes, there is always work to be done -- planting, weeding, watering, and harvesting! Our Community Garden presents the perfect opportunity for churches, companies, and families to get active and help us produce the fruits and vegetables that are given directly to our patients.

Alliance's Community Garden, built with the help of Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, benefits both Alliance patients and community partners who support the garden, including the Boys and Girls Club, local congregations, and area families. All fresh produce grown in our garden is handed directly to patients by their providers, along with a healthy recipe using those fruits and vegetables. Located on two acres adjacent to the AMM clinic at the intersection of New Bern Avenue and Donald Ross Drive, the garden is a productive use of the land and a highly visible reminder that healthy living begins with healthy eating.
