The Peer Mentors are hosting their final service event of the quarter, coming up on Saturday June 2nd at Mother Earth Farm in Puyallup. The Farm produces over 150,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables each growing season—all of which is distributed directly to local food banks and hot meal programs. Produce from the Farm is in the hands of food bank clients within eight hours of being harvested.
Students will get the opportunity to be hands on in the fields, weeding plant rows and attending to any necessary harvesting and/or planting. The Mother Earth Farm incorporates an educational component for area youth and adults. It illustrates more than any other of Emergency Food Network’s programs the diverse community engaged in the fight against local hunger.
When?: Saturday, June 2nd. The event will run from 9am-2pm, with a break for lunch.
Box lunches are being provided to students who sign up prior to May 31st (end of day). The sign in sheet is located in front of the student programs office in Building 23 Room 207.
Where?: We will meet at Mother Earth Farm at 9:00am Saturday morning! 15208 102nd St E., Puyallup! Students are encouraged to carpool!
