Feed the Hungry with Extra Homegrown Produce

By Dianna Marder

Home gardeners with extra fruits and vegetables can put them to good use in the fight against hunger locally now through Sept. 25.

In a program organized by Share the Harvest, individuals or groups can drop off their surplus produce on Saturday mornings at any of the 11 locations listed below.

The food will be collected by the nonprofit Philabundance. Some will be distributed to families in need, and other portions will be used in Philabundance’s Community Kitchen program, which trains low-income adults for jobs in the food-service industry. The students prepare meals served to children and families in emergency shelters.

Drop-off times are 10 a.m. to noon Saturdays, now through Sept. 25.
