Across much of the US, there is not much fresh produce in season right now. But on Valentine’s Day you can still share the love with your local food pantry.
If you’re lucky enough to able to grow food in your garden right now, you can donate your excess harvest.
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. Head to AmpleHarvest.org/donate-food to find a local food pantry, food shelf, food closet or food cupboard. Your neighborhood pantry is eager to accept and distribute fresh produce to people in need.
You can also share the love by volunteering a little bit of your time with AmpleHarvest.org. We are always looking for friends to help share information about AmpleHarvest.org. Chat with a local food bank, food pantry, food closet, food cupboard or food shelf and encourage them to sign-up AmpleHarvest.org/local.
Lastly, you could submit a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Let them know that AmpleHarvest.org helps gardeners and food pantries work together to fight hunger in your community!
This valentine’s day think outside the box (of chocolate, heart shaped sugar candy or jewelry) and share your love with a food pantry in your community!
