Our Garden Giveaways program, student interns and volunteers work with hospital gardeners to harvest and distribute hospital-grown vegetables and herbs to participants in hospital-based chronic and acute disease management groups as well as participants in the hospital’s smoking cessation program. The vegetables and herbs are accompanied by relevant recipes in English and Spanish. The mission is to provide fresh organic produce to patients and their families in order to inspire an incorporation of vegetables into their daily diets. All produce that is shared with participants are grown locally in one of our many onsite SFGH raised garden beds.
Garden Giveaways season will flourish from May 2015- October 2015. To register your health education group for Garden Giveaways produce, contact Community Wellness Program Coordinator at (415) 206-4995.
