A food bank that teaches people to grow their food

Certainly, feeding the hungry is a noble goal. But it doesn't solve the underlying problem. Why are they hungry in the first place? They don't make enough money to buy good food, they live in "food deserts" that don't have decent groceries, and can't grow their own food. In Pima County, the food bank is addressing the third problem, showing their customers how to grow and prepare healthy, fresh food.
