Fight Dirty for Hunger Relief

Francis Center
Student Life

Pfeiffer University would like to extend an invitation to all individuals, community groups, and business organizations to join us in fighting back against hunger in our local communities.

The Pfeiffer Hunger Relief Garden will hold community work days every Tuesday and Thursday now through Thursday, August 9 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Spend an entire morning with us or just a few hours. Workers can expect to assist in maintaining garden beds, completing improvement projects making the garden more accessible, and harvesting fresh produce. Produce harvested from the garden will benefit area food banks in Rowan and Stanly counties. 

The Francis Center for Servant Leadership and Faith Formation created the Hunger Relief Garden in May 2016. With the generous support from program partners, the garden has grown into a 26-bed interactive space to serve communities through growing fresh produce. Since its inception, over one thousand pounds of food from the garden have been donated to aid in local hunger relief. With your help, the garden will be able to increase its impact on relieving hunger in our communities.

For more information or to plan a day of service for your group, contact Kelly Misiak at (704) 463-3441. No prior registration is necessary to volunteer. Harvesting is not permitted outside of community garden work days.
