Donate Fresh Produce!
Grow your own produce? Have excess food? Please don't let your home grown nutritious produce go to waste this summer! Donate your excess harvest to help feed your hungry neighbors!
There are several ways to donate produce:
1. Start now by donating your extra seedlings! through June 14 you can drop off healthy seedlings (seedlings in need of a little TLC are OK) at the Food Bank warehouse in Duquesne weekdays 8:30 am - 3:00 pm!
2. Through the Community Harvest program, you can drop off produce on Saturdays, 10 am - 2 pm (only) at these garden center partners:
*Penn Hills Lawn & Garden Center: 200 Jefferson Rd. Pittsburgh, PA 15235
*Urban Gardener: 1901 Brighton Rd. Pittsburgh, PA 15212
3. The Food Bank warehouse in Duquesne welcomes your produce weekdays 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
4. Donate your nutritious veggies to your local food pantry or soup kitchen. Click here for the Food Bank's agency directory; just put in your zip code. Please call to make arrangements before you go.
5. Donate to your local pantry or soup kitchen through Ample Harvest, a national movement to connect farmers and gardeners so that fresh healthy food doesn't go to waste. Again, enter your zip code to find a registered agency. If your local food pantry or soup kitchen isn't registered, contact them and tell them to register. It's completely free and they might find some new donors!
