although they closed this shelter down, there are great projects like http://www.homelessgardenproject.org/
that helps to make the above a reality for homeless shelters.
the organization, which services homeless and formerly homeless people in its sustainable facility, offers a number of programs to its clients. in addition to its growing gardening initiative, the metro atlanta task force has a 24-hour assistance hotline, day service center and transitional housing program, among other programs.

the first harvest this spring produced 55 pounds of greens.
