Hancock helps maintain a garden growing produce for the Lexington Food Pantry. From March thru October we work along with members of other faith communities in a backyard garden in Lexington Center. We plant, weed, chat (a lot) and nurture this garden. On Saturdays we harvest and deliver that same morning to the Pantry. Our produce is added to donations from other giving gardens. Here is a thank you from the director of the Food Pantry:

“…Now on a Saturday morning, the Food Pantry clients can experience that which they otherwise probably could not. Each week 3-5 tables are laden with a wide variety of fresh produce made possible by contributors…A heartfelt THANK YOU to all. You make it possible for our clients to have nutritious, fresh produce and it is truly appreciated. It is unfortunate that in our climate the growing season is so short….”
