A local organization is fighting hunger by teaching the community how to grow their own food.

The South Texas Food Bank started its own community garden where volunteers can learn how to grow their own greens.

The non-profit held its “I Dig Gardening Fair” Saturday morning where visitors learned the basics of gardening their own fruits and veggies.

The food bank’s SNAP education nutritionists say this is just one of the ways they want to promote a healthy and affordable diet while also giving back to others.

Volunteers got a chance to plant kale, chard, onions, and carrots during the event.
