Backyard gardeners can get involved by planting an extra row in their gardens, then donating the produce to a need-based organization. Even unexpected surplus can make a big difference in helping feed the hungry.
Dropoff sites will vary by location. It could be a food bank, a soup kitchen, a church, or a local food drive. Make sure the organization is equipped to handle, store, and deliver fresh produce in a timely manner.
Generally, the best vegetables to donate are the ones you have the most luck with in the garden. Crops like corn, tomatoes, squash, and peppers are popular with most people and can usually be used right away.
Gardening is a great way to grow more than just vegetables. Gardens like these, where the work and the rewards are shared, grow stronger communities for us all.
