Gardeners

Are you a gardener? Do you have home-grown produce to donate?

You can participate in our Community Harvest program where home gardeners donate produce to nearby member agencies.

How do I start donating?

Using the map below, you will find food pantries, soup kitchens and other Food Bank member agencies that accept Community Harvest donations.

Timing is important: Each location has a “desired donation time,” which helps to ensure that your neighbors in need will enjoy the fruits and vegetables at their freshest. Those times are listed on the map, and also in the Donation Times Calendar below.

Donation Guidelines

  • Make sure all produce donated has at least 3-5 days of shelf life.

  • Use good hygiene practices when harvesting and handling fresh produce.

  • Use a tarp when transporting produce in your vehicle.

  • Be sure to tell the agency that you are donating through the Community Harvest program (if requested by the agency, please call in advance of your donation).

Your Gift of $115 can provide 60 meals
