CANTON - Nature's Storehouse, 21 Main St., will be asking their customers to support GardenShare during this season of Thanksgiving.

Customers will be invited to make a donation to GardenShare to help ensure healthy food for all of our neighbors while checking out at the store from Nov. 12 to 21 and have the option to add their name to a wall of donors.

"Many people feel that healthy food is inaccessible,” said Rainbow Crabtree, co-owner of Nature's Storehouse. “We are inspired by the work that GardenShare does to help ensure access to healthy food, and we are proud to partner with them in this fundraising effort."

"All of us at GardenShare appreciate this so much," said Executive Director of GardenShare Becky Allen. "Nature's Storehouse customers care about fresh, healthy food and this promotion will give them the opportunity to help everyone in our community have access to locally grown food in addition to our local farmers."

GardenShare has worked to end hunger and strengthen our local food system since 1996. Originally formed as a network of gardeners sharing their extra harvest with local food pantries, GardenShare has since embraced a larger vision for the region, exemplified in the slogan, "Healthy Food, Healthy Farms, Everybody Eats."

GardenShare says its work to help low-income people access fresh, locally grown food and to strengthen the food system are designed to move the community toward solving the problem of hunger in St. Lawrence County through policy advocacy work and by strengthening the food system to benefit all county residents.
