Unity Gardens is throwing a harvest party with help from a bunch of friends.
More than a dozen local restaurants will prepare food for the fifth Taste of Unity Harvest Celebration later this month to benefit the agency that focuses on community gardens and growing good food in South Bend.
“This event, held near National Food Day, helps not only raise funds to support our free food gardens, but also raises awareness to the benefits of a diet rich in fresh produce,” said president and founder Sara Stewart.
