Did you know that the local Foodbank accepts donations of fresh produce? Produce may be accepted as long as it will keep (not spoil within a few days) between drop off and distribution.

Help out local families struggling with hunger by giving what you can (and sometimes plant a bit too much of!).

You can contact the Food Bank directly to ask about your specific donation and to coordinate the best time to drop off:
