At The Center at Donaldson, PHJC Volunteers tend and harvest fresh, nutritious food in our Greenhouses, supporting our Sisters, residents, co-workers, guests, and the local community. Using safe, sustainable organic methods, they work alongside staff to renew and enrich the soil each season.

In 2023, our Greenhouses yielded over 7,400 pounds of nutrient-dense crops, including various vegetables. We also raised poultry, providing 97 dozen eggs to our kitchen, and composted organic waste, generating 50 cubic yards of fertilizer.

With 12.4 percent of our region’s residents facing food insecurity and one in four children experiencing hunger, your support is crucial. Last year, Volunteers distributed nearly 250 pounds of produce to 145 neighbors in need, aiming to increase this by 15 percent in 2024
