KC class donates produce to food pantry

The Kishwaukee College Sustainable Horticulture class donated bushels of fresh vegetables to a local food pantry. The classes are offered in spring, summer and fall. Students get a hands-on experience with the campus vegetable garden, beehives, and bluebird nesting boxes. The vegetable harvest is donated to local charities with this year’s bounty going to N.I.C.E., a 15-church multi-denomination consortium in Lee. The group’s food pantry is open on from 8:15 to 11 a.m. Saturdays. For more information on N.I.C.E., visit www.watermanumc.org/nice-center.html. Pictured (from left) with a sampling of the fresh vegetables are Rich Alde, Horticulture faculty; Kim Rotella, Hort student; and Brian Byro, Malta, N.I.C.E. board member.
