Ribbon Cutting For New Food Pantry Garden


The City of Mishawaka, in partnership with Penn Township and the Mishawaka Food Pantry, will hold a brief ribbon cutting and planting ceremony on May 2nd, 11:30am, at the recently constructed Mishawaka Food Pantry Garden. The garden is located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Hill Street and Lincolnway West in downtown Mishawaka, immediately west of the Mishawaka Food Pantry located at 315 Lincolnway West.

The garden includes 14 raised planting beds that will be used to provide fresh vegetables for the Food Pantry. Outside tables, a bike rack, decorative fencing, and plantings were included in the project as well. As part of the City's Art in Public Places program, a stainless steel sculpture from local Mishawaka artist Bob Bloss was installed at the street corner.

Designed by Pat Brown of Sitescapes, Inc., the $142,000 project was completed by Acorn Landscaping. Funding was provided from the City's Tax Increment Finance District.
