Trees of Life

Trees of Life gives you an opportunity to purchase fruit bearing trees that will be cultivated to provide nourishment to the more than 70,000 individuals in Citrus, Hernando, and Sumter Counties who count on the Community Food Bank (CFB) to feed themselves and their families.

Here’s how it works:

The CFB is housed on several acres of land that was donated for the purposes of providing food assistance. Our two warehouses serve as a receiving, holding, and shipping hub for our 60+ partner agencies who receive food from the CFB each week. We have additional acreage around these warehouses that we are transforming into a Trees of Life garden.

Individuals, families, organizations, companies, etc. have the opportunity to purchase a tree or numerous trees either in their name or in the name of a person, a pet, or company they want to honor. The tree(s) will be planted, and a customized staked tree plaque will be placed in front of the tree denoting the name of who purchased the tree and who it is honoring. The person/entity the tree is being planted in honor of will receive a certificate and image of the tree and plaque.
