by Karen Fitzpatrick in Donations

Week 17, which runs from Sunday, October 3 – Saturday October 9 is generally our last week of operations. Please see the list of donation drop off locations below to see when your location will be closing.

tomatoes on a vinePlease remember when donating tomatoes to pick them slightly before they are fully ripe, and if possible place them in card board boxes. Cereal or granola boxes can be taped at the ends, and the center cut out. This helps keep them from bruising during transport.

Thank you for all you do to help provide fresh produce and herbs to families in need.
