A Food Garden Ministry
Our Community Food Garden is adjacent to the MZ Prayer Garden. Through hands-on efforts of volunteers, many fresh vegetables are grown and harvested in season to share with the Lower Currituck Food Pantry. Mt. Zion UMC helps to sponsor the food pantry which is dedicated to providing emergency relief to Currituck County residents needing food.
In the food garden, volunteers help prepare the soil, plant seeds or small plants, control weeds and later help with harvesting the bounty of vegetables. New helpers are welcomed and appreciated. It becomes a labor of joy helping to provide home grown vegetables to those whom may not often be able to enjoy fresh produce.
