Hunger Heroes!

Who are We?

Hunger can be found everywhere – often where you least expect it. The homeless population represents only about 10% of our food recipients. The rest? Everyday people like low-wage workers, children, seniors on fixed incomes and individuals with health issues.

Garden of Health Inc. is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit food bank covering Montgomery and Bucks County, PA. We provide allergen friendly food and fresh produce to over 10 food pantries. We saw the need for special dietary foods (gluten-free, heart healthy, diabetic friendly, free of 1 or more of the top 8 allergens) and fresh produce in food pantries and in 2015 We started with one food pantry and one garden with 8 plots in it and a partnership with a wholesale produce distributor. 

Today we are providing these allergen freindly foods to 15 food pantries in bucks and montgomery counties.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide special dietary foods (gluten free, heart healthy, diabetic friendly, foods free of one or more of the top 8 allergens) and fresh produce to low-income families. We do this by distributing this type of food to 15 food pantries. We also distribute the fresh produce to low-income senior housing and senior centers that provide lunch for seniors during the week.
