Flower-picking provides food for those in need



Indianapolis, Indiana – On Saturday morning, people strolled through the flower fields at Indy Urban Acres.

They collected flowers with a clipper and a bucket for a good cause. For their bucket to be filled, they paid $40. The funds were directly donated to Indy Urban Acres, a charity that provides food for those in need in Indianapolis.

“Introducing people to our farm also introduces them to our mission, so they can continue to support us financially, by participating in other events, or even by helping us harvest or volunteer here at the farm,” said David O’Rourke, director of creative services and innovation for the Park Alliance of Indianapolis.

Every year, Indy Urban Acres gives away more than 60,000 thousand pounds of produce to those in need.

The Indy Urban Acres website lists other opportunities to give and volunteer if this was your last chance to do so for the year.
