Donate Extra Produce
Many of us end up with too much produce. After all, just how many beans and zucchini can a person eat? So if you find yourself with extra fruits and vegetables this summer, consider donating the extra. Rising food prices are resulting in unprecedented traffic at community food banks. The Garden Writers Association's Plant a Row for the Hungry program encourages gardeners to plant extra and donate the surplus to those in need. If you'd like to donate fresh produce to a local food assistance program, contact the national program coordinator via e-mail:, or call (877) 492-2727 (toll-free); or visit: for a list of regional coordinators.
