PPS is one of 80 school gardens in the Charlotte area which provide fresh herbs and vegetables to Friendship Gardens who supply Friendship Trays with food to feed our neighbors in need.
During the Fall of 2017, we donated over 50 pounds of produce to Friendship Trays this fall. The food helps feed over 700 people in our community daily. Our goal is to donate twice that much in 2018.
