A&L Great Lakes Laboratories takes great pride in helping out our Fort Wayne community. One of the organizations for which we raise charitable funds for during the year is the Fort Wayne Community Urban Farmers. They provide fresh vegetables to many local agencies that prepare meals for the underserved population of homeless individuals, low-income senior citizens and children. Agencies like soup kitchens, group homes, residential treatment programs and homeless shelters all benefit from the Urban Farmers program.
In addition, they have been working to establish an Urban 4-H program in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Club of Fort Wayne to teach young people the importance of self-sufficiency through gardening.
Below is an article that recently ran in the local Fort Wayne News Sentinel about the program:
