~A NEW Food Growing Program for the Santa Barbara County Food Bank~
This program is designed to empower some of the 1 in 4 people across the County of Santa Barbara the Food Bank serves, to take a new perspective on their role in the food system. Growing some of your own food not only provides a healthy addition to your diet, it gets you out of the role of a passive consumer and gets you thinking about what else is possible.
