The Legislative Hunger Caucus held a ceremonial groundbreaking of the Capitol Hunger Garden Tuesday.
“This is one of the activities that has occurred in my tenure, my eight years in the General Assembly, that I am most proud,” said caucus co-chair Sen. Mike Brubaker (R-Lancaster). According to Sen. Brubaker, the Hunger Garden is a project that grows vegetables and exposes young people to various types of food. “There is education that takes place there,” he said. “It’s really an incredibly type of project.”
Sen. Brubaker noted it is the work of the Hunger Caucus to encourage the 49 other states to start a similar project and to donate the food from the Hunger Garden to a local food relief organization.
