God’s Storehouse is raising funds for its urban farm through its “Yoga on the Farm” series.
Participants enjoyed an evening yoga session on Wednesday, which helped fight hunger while providing a relaxing experience.
The summer series takes place on the second Wednesday of every month, and all proceeds go to God’s Warehouse Urban Farm, a community gardening space where volunteers co-grow fresh produce for distribution to those in need.
Classes are donation-based, and funds raised will be used to purchase tools and maintain the farm.
Sherri Tuck of Danville Meditation and Yoga is donating her time to lead the class.
Like many businesses, God’s Warehouse has not been immune to the effects of the pandemic. For the first time since before the pandemic, more people are seeking help.
This year alone, God’s Warehouse has distributed more than 500,000 pounds of food, an increase of more than 170% from this time last year.

Currently, the Danville nonprofit food pantry collects food from local grocery stores such as Food Lion, Target and Walmart. In addition, they accept donations from the local community.
However, those without donations must be purchased. While they are currently seeing only modest increases in food prices, inflation and the current conflict in Ukraine are sure to push prices even higher.
God’s Warehouse is asking the public to help by donating time or supporting their fundraisers, like yoga on the farm.
Residents can help postal workers pick up by leaving a bag of non-perishable food in their mailbox on Saturday as part of the Stamp Out Hunger food campaign.
