A middle school community garden is providing fresh produce to local residents. We are excited to see great projects like this emerge around the country. As TangoTab continues to grow, we are supporting more farming projects similar to this one through funds generated by app usage. It’s our goal to help feed those facing hunger and food insecurity with nutritious and fresh food.


Middle schoolers in West Virginia have created a school farm as a part of the STEM program. Many of their crops have brought multiple harvests, and students are growing and giving away potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, cabbage, green peppers, banana peppers, and sweet potatoes to their community for free.

Jean Mewshaw, the school’s principal, said, “We’ll have neighbors come to look at the garden and we’ll send them home with vegetables.”

Not only are these students getting an amazing opportunity to learn about growing food, they are also nourishing their community in the process.

As student Logan Ford commented, “It’s awesome knowing that this helps people who might not have a garden, or the space to build a garden. It’s mind-blowing to know you can help people like this.”

With hunger and food insecurity being a reality for people in every county in America, projects like this are especially inspiring!

There are so many ways to give back to your community, and each of us has the ability to make a difference. One simple way that you can help end hunger and food insecurity in your area is by using the TangoTab app!

Never underestimate your ability to positively impact others, because you really do have the power to help make positive change happen. Together, we can accomplish great feats!
