Food To Share

Food to Share – how you can help

In an effort to help increase the supply of fresh produce in our area, all gardeners participating in a Community Gardens in the Parks garden, at home or in another community garden are encouraged to share excess food with those in need.  The garden communities voluntarily work together to insure that no food goes unused.  Fresh produce is donated to Food Distribution Agency Partners, who distribute it to local food pantries, soup kitchens and people in need.
