Grow. Glean. Give
Leadership Evansville alumni, together with area corporations and community organizations, launched Bryce's Basket, a program to collect excess fresh produce from sources across the region and provide it to those in need in our community. The program honors the memory of former Evans Elementary School student Bryce Jordan, who passed away in early 2015 and served as an inspiration to others.
One in five children and one in six adults are food insecure. Bryce's Basket is a collective effort of the Evansville Public Library, Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation, Purdue Extension, Leadership Evansville, and the Tri-State Food Bank to ensure that people in our community whose diets are deficient are receiving healthy, nutritious, and fresh food that is readily available from farmers, community gardeners and homeowners throughout the region.
How the Program Works
Grow – Plant your garden.
Glean – Harvest any extra veggies or fruits, like tomatoes, cucumbers, corn and eggplant…
Give – Drop off the fresh whole foods at Tri-State Food Bank, or organize a collection. Want to help, but don’t have a garden? Purchase extra produce while grocery shopping, and donate it!
