There may be little fresh produce in season in most parts of the country right now, but this Valentine’s Day we are encouraging you to share the love with your local food pantry. If you’re lucky enoug
h to live in a part of the country where you are still able to grow food in your garden, you can donate your excess fresh fruits and vegetables to a local food pantry. Or if you’re still looking at snow covered garden beds where you live, you can always purchase fresh produce to share with a local food pantry. By going
to www.AmpleHarvest.org/findpantry you can find a food pantry, food shelf, food closet or food cupboard in your neighborhood that is eager to accept and distribute fresh produce to those in need. You can also share the love by volunteering a little bit of your time with AmpleHarvest.org. We are always looking for concerned citizens interested in sharing information about AmpleHarvest.org with a local food bank, food pantry, food closet, food cupboard or food shelf and encouraging them to sign-up www.AmpleHarvest.org/local. Lastly, you could submit a letter to the editor of y
our local newspaper letting them know that AmpleHarvest.org is an opportunity for gardeners and food pantries to work together to address hunger in your community!
This valentine’s day consider thinking outside the box (of chocolate, of valentine cards, of heart shaped sugar candy or jewelry) and share your love with a food pantry in your community!
