The 7,000th Food Pantry has Registered at!

Copy of shutterstock_184907459NANA’s House in Mastic NY recently registered itself at and joined the
previously registered 6,999 pantries, further expanding access to fresh food for their clients.

According to Wendy Falanga of NANA’s House, “Fresh produce donations are so important to our organization, especially since we provide food and services to children. Most of the time we receive canned goods and other non-perishable items, which are appreciated, but do not offer as much nutrition as fresh vegetables. Receiving fresh produce donations would help us offer more nutritious options to the children we serve, so we are excited to be a part of and hope the community will share their extra produce with us!”

The historic inability to donate fresh food to a community food program has contributed to
America’s huge food waste problem while also forcing nearby food programs to only offer
processed food. Every food program that registers at is another point on the map that growers can find and support – for the rest of their gardening life.
