FEED THE WORLD ONE GARDEN AT A TIME! VEGGIES FOR ALL CAMPAIGN!
This summer I will be donating fresh produce from my garden to the local FISH food pantry. They have a small section for fresh produce and would welcome more. We talked about community gardens, and that is still a goal of mine, but I would like to start with a far simpler approach. I am going to grow one or two extra plants in my garden specifically for donation. I am thinking a tomato plant and a kung po pepper plant; I have not yet purchased my plants for this season so it is still up in the air a bit.
I would like to encourage other gardeners to consider growing one extra plant and donating the produce from that plant to a local food pantry.
I would also be willing to act as a middleman between you the grower and the food pantries by gathering produce along the Route 1 corridor from Rutgers University in New Brunswick to Trenton. I may also be able to arrange a drop off site at Rutgers University in New Brunswick.
The woman from FISH in Dunellen said I couldn’t possibly provide too much produce for her to use! Let’s prove her wrong!
If you are interested in having me pick up produce from you to bring to the food pantry, please email me at email@example.com
