Save the date for the annual TAPRoots Plant Sale! This year's sale is set for Saturday, May 7, 9 a.m.-noon. The sale will be in person at the Cupboard with no online preorders. Drop by any time during the sale to select the plants you would like. Proceeds go to TAPRoots, a group of volunteers who work in the Holly Springs Food Cupboard garden and refuse to let a brain injury condition called Aphasia to define them.
March at the Cupboard
Thank you so much UnitedHealthcare for donating 1,000 cloth bags to the Holly Springs Food Cupboard! We are packing the bags full of kid-friendly foods like fruit cups, sandwich crackers and pop-top cans of meats for clients with school-age children.
Thanks to the Villages at Pecan Grove for a food drive!
Many thanks to Triangle Community Church! Church members collected Bumper Crop donations in cloth bags. After donations are sorted and distributed to clients, we reuse the cloth bags, filling them with kid-friendly foods for families with school-age children.
Thanks to Christopher and Colby and Alternate Current Solutions for installing new lighting and power outlets!
Garden Update

Interested in volunteering in the Holly Springs Food Cupboard garden? Consider dropping by Saturdays between 9-11 a.m. and stay as long as you like. All ages are welcome, and we try to find fun tasks for younger children. Bring gloves and a drink; no need to bring any tools. Interested? Feel free to contact Food Cupboard Garden Director Jerry DeWitt at organicman123@yahoo.com to be added to the volunteer list.

Last year, volunteers harvested more than 2,819 pounds of fresh, nutritious produce for Cupboard clients from the garden! Thank you, volunteers! We appreciate you! 
For his Eagle Scout project, Myles S designed and installed these gutter gardens with irrigation for growing lettuce, spinach, chard & kale. Thank you so much for this innovative and helpful project, Myles and team!
The weather is warming up… and so is the activity in our garden! Thanks to the many volunteers who work in the garden as we spring into the growing season. Thanks also to NC State Extension for donating garden tools!
