Your Contributions Make a Difference

In 2008, Out of the Garden Project began by supplying a handful of families with food on Friday so they would have enough to eat over the weekend.

From small, humble beginnings, this organization has grown to the largest of its kind in the Piedmont Triad. It is all thanks to volunteers and donors like you who have made it possible.

2023 Impact

We could not feed over 500 families every week without your support. Thank you!
