Come join us as we serve alongside an incredible organization right here in Dallas that is committed growing the best-tasting, healthiest produce in a once forgotten and neglected part of the city, while also inspiring hope through nutrition programs, career mentorship, housing stability and education.

Whatever needs to be done! And for those who are able to stay a bit longer, we will also be enjoying lunch together afterward in their highly acclaimed cafe at the Bonton Market (Entrees cost $8.50-$10)
