Good Food on a Budget - Canning and Buying in Bulk

Meet Vivian Mims, a community gardener in the St. Anthony’s neighborhood in Rondo. She participated in the Rondo Greens cook off last November.

Regarding her greens recipe: “It takes no time, just lots of love!”

“People think buying good food is so expensive, it really isn’t,” Vivian explains, “You just need to know how to budget yourself.”

“The canning that our grandparents did, that’s bulk, that’s organic...the pantries, they all need to come back!”
