Growing a Solution To Hunger

Some years ago, the Rev. Jim Eichner was volunteering at a church’s farm project that was so successful, the surplus was donated to food banks.

“That’s where I started to get the idea,” he says. “Instead of giving food banks what’s left over, give them first pick.”

Thus was born Food Bank Farm, a ministry of Redmond’s The Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross, where Father Jim is rector. Food Lifeline is a major recipient and a major supporter of the farm program, which is dedicated to raising produce to help food banks fight hunger.
