Garden on the Go Visits Joy James

Garden on the GoThe Tarrant County Food Bank brought their Garden on the Go to Joy James Elementary on Tuesday, Oct. 14th.  This was a fabulous opportunity for the Sansom Park community to purchase bags of fresh fruits and vegetables at the incredible price of $5.00 per bag.  Each bag contained about 20 – 25 pounds of produce.  Some of the items were tomatoes, apples, pears, bananas, two different kinds of squash, sweet potatoes and much more.  Once a month The Garden on the Go will set up at Joy James Elementary. 

Thank you to the Tarrant County Food Bank employees who very kindly distributed the food.
