Donate Fresh Produce

Our distribution sites are all found in food deserts, where access to fresh produce is extremely limited. Our distribution of nearly 1,500 lbs. of fresh produce each week helps put healthy food options on the table for hundreds of families in need. If you are a gardener, a farmer, a wholesaler, restaurant or retailer, we would love to partner with you!

A list of the most requested items is below, but we would be grateful to receive most any fresh fruits or vegetables. The only limitation would be large melons (they are difficult to put into bags with other items).

  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Bell Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Apples
