This year, after taking over the duties of feeding the community on Detroit’s East side when a nearby food bank shut down, the Sisters went into high gear -- bread, cereal, non-perishables, but fell short on produce.
Fresh produce is a Godsend for food banks -- healthy, needed, hard to get and difficult to store. That’s why this year -- more than any other -- citizen farmers, hobbyists and amateur gardeners became most welcome when they have enough for themselves and can share their bounty.
