The garden truck helps reconnect urban communities to real food, nutrition and the art of growing their own food.  Working in conjunction with Des Moines Food Bank, the garden truck offers hands-on experience for children, seniors, teens and families to gain skills and experience growing food in urban settings.  The garden truck can be found throughout the growing season at community parks and events in Des Moines, Normandy Park and SeaTac.  Thanks to recent funding from KCD, the garden truck can now be accessed at area pre-schools, elementary schools, college campuses, senior centers, farmers markets, and teen centers.   In the summer, the garden truck supports the Summer Meals program.
