Gardeners, did you know that extra produce from your gardens can be donated to a food bank or soup kitchen?
Almost anything grown at home can be donated–from tomatoes, rhubarb, strawberries, to apples. Some charities even make preserves from donations, so don’t be too quick to throw away overgrown cucumbers!
Please contact a food bank prior to donating to determine hours of operation and storage requirements.
The Plant a Row – Grow A Row program is a terrific way to enjoy gardening while helping to get fresh locally grown food on the tables of families in need.
A list of food banks and soup kitchens can be found below.
