TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Members of the Giving Garden in Terre Haute are disappointed Tuesday after someone raided the organization's food supplies.
The Giving Garden produces food at the Vigo County Fairgrounds and they then donate the food to families in need.
More than 20,000 pounds of food have been collected but 100 pounds of food was stolen.
Members of the Giving Garden are sad because they say help will always be given to those who need it.
“This is the Giving Garden. It's not a ‘you pick’ garden, you know where you just help yourself,” said Greg Fields from the Giving Garden. “The stuff is given to the local food banks and if somebody is hungry all you need to do is go to the food bank and they can get a meal."
Members say the thieves stole the entire supply of cabbage and there will not be enough time to replant this season.
The holiday season is often a happy one for the whole family, but for those grieving the loss of a loved one it can be a difficult time of the year. One local family is carrying on the memory of their son during the holidays.
