Centerpieces for Pantries

Don’t waste your money on flowers that quickly wilt!

Create a beautiful centerpiece of whole fruits and vegetables for the holidays.

A floral arrangement only lasts a day or so and then it starts to wilt. Try something different this year.  Buy whole fruit from a farmers market or supermarket (or use your garden produce!) and turn it into a beautiful centerpiece for the table.

Fresh, uncut fruits and vegetables will still be beautiful and fragrant, but they last much longer.

When you’re done you can donate the entire centerpiece to a local food pantry, turning your table centerpiece into nutritious food for the less fortunate in your community.

It is good for your neighbors in need and good for the environment. It will save you money too!

Let your centerpiece grace your table one day and feed a family the next.

If you think this is as good an idea as we do, please make a tax deductible donation to AmpleHarvest.org with the the money you’ve saved by not buying expensive flowers.

WiltedFlower

Instead of a floral arrangement in the center of your special dinner, use a whole fruit edible arrangement. Then share the leftover fruit with a local food pantry.

Your food can bless two tables.
