2020 Donation Drop Off Locations

by Karen Fitzpatrick in Donations

Please note:
St. John’s Lutheran Church Location in Fogelsville has closed for the season. We have moved the drop off location to St. Paul’s UCC in Trexlertown. The hours are slightly different.

We have updated the times for a few of our drop off locations. They are noted in blue.

Please 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.
