Last week, Secretary Vilsack stopped by Bread for the City and joined National and Community Service CEO Patrick Corvington and Bread for the City President George Jones to underscore the administration’s commitments to ending hunger in America.
The event took place at an organization that is on the frontlines of helping the most vulnerable Americans. From a food distribution center and medical facilities for those in need to the rooftop garden designed to teach people about healthy eating, Bread for the City, is sowing the seeds of hope.
The photos below show Bread for the City’s rooftop vegetable garden, the largest of its kind in the Washington, D.C. Metro area. The produce grown here provides the surrounding community with fresh foods that would otherwise be hard to access and places a strong emphasis on the benefits of educational gardening.
