What started as a backyard initiative for the Argentos to help feed the homeless has quickly grown into a project that involves neighbors, businesses and farms around Montreal.

It started when Susan and Domenic Argento began donating the surplus of fresh produce from their garden to the Old Brewery Mission in 2013 — and also put out a collection box at their home so neighbors can also contribute.

People are even buying produce from the store for the Argentos to bring to the shelter.
