Calling all Gardeners! Drop off your fresh garden produce to support local food pantries! Thanks to the generosity of Rock Spring Church, we will again be providing Produce Bagging for local gardeners starting in May. Please see the details below for when to drop off your produce and to volunteer with produce bagging. It’s a fun way to meet fellow gardeners, food lovers, and community members.
Here is a list of produce that pantries prefer receiving, based on the season. And information on how to package the produce if you plan on dropping off or packaging produce.
List of pantries where you can donate produce (Note this will be updated closer to the start of the season)
Calling all volunteers! Sign up here! To volunteer you need to watch a training video and answer some questions regarding Covid and food safety. Especially need a Day-of Coordinator: The coordinator will welcome produce baggers, assist with set up and bagging, labeling produce, adding recipes/nutrition handouts to bags, and support the main Produce Manager (Becky Halbe-Master Gardener, Church member, FOUA Board member). Also need Drivers and Produce baggers. This is an easy and Covid safe volunteering event.
