At North Hills Community Outreach, we serve over 1,500 families per year with our three food pantries, averaging about 500 families per month. We strive to provide the best food we can to our clients. Quality food is often expensive, and so the ability to provide low-income families the opportunity to eat well is the driving force behind the hard work that is poured into the Rosalinda Sauro Sirianni Memorial Garden. By providing fresh highly nutritious food, we hope to reduce levels of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, and also give our clients a normal food shopping experience at some of the most difficult times in their lives.The garden is just one of the many programs that NHCO offers to help move people from poverty to self-sufficiency.
The garden has large compost bins, an information kiosk, a rain garden, geocache, and a bioswale and regularly hosts educational workshops for the community.
Please consider coming out to our Open Volunteer Hours which are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Monday and Thursday, April through October. No RSVP is required unless you are a group of 5 or more. Volunteer hours will not be held on national holidays. All scheduled work days are held rain, shine or snow.
