Bank of America Foundation Gives Grant to Support Community Kitchen Garden

Barrett Taylor and the volunteers from Bank of America working in the Community Kitchen Garden last year. Band of America has a history of supporting the Garden both with funding and volunteers.

Thank you to the Bank of America Foundation for providing Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden with a grant that will help support the Community Kitchen Garden.

This year the Community Kitchen Garden has grown 6,599 lbs of local, organically grown vegetables for Central Virginia’s hungry children and homebound seniors served by FeedMore. Since 2008 BOA Charitable Foundation has been working to provide hunger relief and has donated over $12 million dollars to projects like ours. Bank of America Charitable Foundation has a history of support for the Community Kitchen Garden, and Bank of America employees support the mission too with their volunteer efforts.

Thank you Bank of America Foundation — we appreciate your partnership.
