Georgia Highlands College has been growing their own produce with the intention of providing for the needs of hungry students. According to a GHC media release, Some 260 pounds of produce was grown in a 160-square-foot plot split between a greenhouse and raised beds at the college’s Cartersville location and has been donated to the GHC Charger Food Pantry.
The Charger Food Pantry was started in 2016 to meet the needs of food insecurity among college students. It is stocked with non-perishable food items, personal items, and now, fresh produce, thanks to GHC’s Natural Science and Physical Education division.
The produce program is anticipated to expand from Cartersville to each of GHC’s locations. The next one is planned for the Floyd campus.
