The Hungry Would Appreciate Fruits of Your Labor
by KYW’s Phran Novelli
If you’re growing fruits and vegetables, chances are you’ll end up with more tomatoes, zucchini or apples, than you – or even your friends and neighbors – can use.
Instead of letting it go to waste, which is what happens to nearly 30% of the food produced in the United States, you can share it with hungry people in our area, through Philabundance, our region’s largest hunger relief organization.
Fresh produce is the best thing to eat, but it can be so expensive that it’s often the hardest thing for people on a tight budget to afford. So every Saturday through September 25th from 10am to noon, you can drop off your extra fruit and vegetables at garden centers and other convenient locations all over the Delaware Valley.
To get the list of all the drop-off spots, just click on the link below. If you’re lucky enough to have extra produce, donating it to Philabundance is easy, keeps it from going to waste, and makes you feel great.
