Local Surrey Farm needs helping hands to help harvest vegetables for our Local Food Banks

Harvest Vegetables

Help is needed for a local Surrey farm that suports our Local Food Banks.

In 2011, Jas Singh started God's Little Acre Farm on 40th avenue in Surrey and his main purpose was to grow 3 acres of potatoes for the local food banks. His story is a heart warming story that I had to share. For someone to give everything of themselves in order to help feed others is just simply amazing. In his first year back in 2011 he was able to donate over 60,000 pounds of potatoes to the food bank. With a lot of support and donations Jas Singh has brought his little farm up to be able to produce over 200,000 pounds for the local food banks. 

The only obstacle he has now is that he doesn't have enough volunteers to help harvest his crop of vegetables and its a shame to see the food rotting in the fields. That's where the public comes in, God's Little Acre needs about 100 more volunteers to help harvest the rest of their crops between now and the end of October.

As a family we are going to commit at least one day in September and we are also going to challenge our office to participate in a corporate harvest day. What a great cause and all you need to do is give up an hour of your time and even that little bit of time will surely have a big impact and help to ensure no more food goes to waste and instead gets served on the tables of those in need.

It is a great way to give back and a great family event that not only teaches your children to give back but something you can do

They are looking for volunteers on Wednesday from 4pm til the sun goes down and Saturdays from 10am - 4pm.
