About Food For Thought Community Garden:

Food For Thought Community Garden has two main goals: to provide free, healthy, fresh produce to those in need in Robeson County, and to educate our community about sustainable gardening, food insecurity, and health. Food For Thought was founded in April of 2013 on a plot located behind Storage Solutions and in May of 2014 we moved to a plot owned by First Baptist Church. The plot is located at 505 N Pine St, at the corner of 6th and Pine. We began by building twenty raised beds through a donation from the Robeson Road Runners, and have added ten beds through last year’s fundraiser. We were also able to build a storage building through last year’s fundraiser. We operate entirely through donations of funds and materials from individuals and organizations in our area and depend on our hardworking volunteers to plant, maintain and harvest our produce.
