Fresh Produce for the Needy

What issue did your Take Action project address?
My Take Action Project addressed the lack of fresh vegetables in the Brookfield Food Pantry.
What was your Take Action Project? Who did you involve in your project?
My Take Action project was to grow fresh vegetables in the Brookfield Community Garden and donate the produce that I had grown to the Brookfield Food Pantry. And to make my project sustainable I made a sign and posted it at the Community Garden asking anyone that had extra produce to bring it to the Brookfield Food Pantry. I involved many members of both the Brookfield Food Pantry and the Brookfield Community Garden while in the process of completing my project.
What were the results? How did it affect the community?
The results were great. I got to go and bring my fresh produce to the Brookfield Food Pantry almost every week for about two whole months! My project affected my community by improving the diets of all those who rely on the food pantry for food.
What did you learn from the experience?
From this experience I have learned that even the smallest act of kindness can really make a big impact on someone's life. All of the people at the Brookfield Food Pantry were so grateful for what I was doing for them.
