The group has a mission to provide specialized opportunities and improved quality of life for underprivileged and underserved people.

During Saturday’s giveaway, volunteers harvested over 35 pounds of produce for the giveaway.

“That we’re not only able to not only grow, but then we’re able to harvest and provide a harvest for our community. So if you have a need you can always come up here and if we have it harvested, it’s yours,” Chief Operations Officer for The Bridge Eco Village April Ashe said.

Besides the giveaway, The Bridge is planning to host many more community events in the future. To find out more, click here.
