The Giving Garden

The Giving Garden is a new community justice initiative to grow fresh, organic produce. The produce from this garden will go to our Resurrection Food Mobile and our Overland Park Food Pantry and be given away as a tangible sign of love to those facing food insecurity. This garden is an exciting opportunity to come alongside Resurrection’s Vision 2030. We hope to actively close the gaps that exist between the world as it is today and the way it should be in our lives, across our community, and around the world.

The Justice and Kindness Gap
We will directly address food injustice and build bridges of healing in our city so that Kansas City looks more like the Kingdom of God. We will model for our community and world what it looks like to truly love our neighbors.

The Generational Gap
We will connect older and younger people and raise a new generation of leaders. We hope to effectively reach non-religious people in an increasingly secular community. We will create a unique community where all generations are valued, respected and cared for. 

The Spiritual Gap
Working together in God’s creation to care for those experiencing physical hunger will help us deepen our relationships with those we are working with. This will give us many opportunities to encourage one another along our faith journeys.

The Opportunity Gap
We will work to ensure that the members of our community experiencing physical hunger will have access to fresh, organic produce through our Food Mobile and Overland Park Food Pantry.

We are so excited for you get involved! If you have questions or would like to know more about the garden, please reach out to Katy at katy.nall@cor.org. We can’t wait to see you in the garden!
