500 x 500

What is 500 X 500? How will it feed hungry people in our city?

Simply put, Community Garden Kitchen is looking for 500 community groups or families to raise at least $500 each to help fund construction.

Such broad-based support across our community will not only put a large dent (at least $250,000) in the total sum needed to build the kitchen, it will speak volumes about Collin County citizen’s support of CGK to grant makers.

‘How to’ raise your money is totally up to each participating group. At Community Garden Kitchen, we know local organizations and families have a strong desire to help others in need and want to strengthen bonds in your group by working and playing together.

There are hundreds of ways a small group can raise funds…. we hope you will enjoy putting your creativity to work. We think you’ll have fun with it!
