Farmers and home growers may also donate fresh produce. Do you have a garden that grows too many tomatoes, zucchini, peppers? Do your neighbors or co-workers avoid you when they see you coming with that bag of extras…again? We challenge you to go ahead and let the extras grow. In fact, GROW A ROW for our community. Your donation is tax-deductible. You will complete a short form the first time you donate. Contact us for more information.
FRESH FOOD DRIVES
Food Pantries do not receive consistent quantities of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially during winter months. We invite you to host a Fresh Food Drive at your place of worship, business or organization you belong to. The idea is simple – shop local and bring 10 pounds of fresh produce – think bananas, apples, oranges, potatoes, onions. Produce will be distributed to local food pantries via Good Food Recovery.
