St. Paul's Community Garden, Lenexa, Kansas Affiliated with St. Paul's United Methodist Church, the St. Paul's Community Garden is committed to providing fresh produce to feed the hungry. The church feeds the hungry through monthly Argentine Food Kitchen meals, donations to food pantries (Metropolitan Avenue Methodist Church, Johnson County Multiservices Center Food Pantry, and Shawnee Community Services), and delivering meals to the homebound through Meals on Wheels and meals for families in the Interfaith Hospitality network. In 2013 320 pounds of produce was donated to local agencies. Additionally produce was used for youth group meals and for snacks at the church preschool that uses the garden as an educational tool for the children. The grant helped establish the garden by providing funds to purchase rain barrels and an irrigation system, build raised beds and acquire a shed, fencing, compost bins and tools.
