Video: food bank to grow hundreds of fish yearly to feed the hungry

by Chris Lovingood

In Pennsylvania, a local food bank is taking several pallet tanks, and converting them into a place to grow 480 fish a year and more than 2,800 pounds of greens to give to people in need. The waste from the fish will be used as fertilizer to help the greens grow. This will all take place in four large, soon-to-be repurposed shipping containers.
