Pilgrim Terrace aims to empower low-income senior and disabled individuals to live independently in a supportive community that encourages and facilitates healthy nutrition, mental and physical activity, and social interaction.
Their community tower garden, which includes our system, benefits the residents and the wider community greatly. Lunch is prepared every weekday and is available at no charge to residents using vegetables grown in the garden. The overall mood at Pilgrim Terrace has drastically improved since the lunch program began. In addition to prepared lunches, the Food Bank brings their brown bag program to Pilgrim Terrace twice a month where low-income senior citizens can pick up a free bag of groceries.
