PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – With tens of thousands of mouths to feed in the Delaware Valley, hunger relief organization Philabundance is asking home gardners to donate any excess fruit and vegetables from their harvest.

“Today is the kickoff of the share the harvest program,” explains Lindsay Hughes.

Hughes, with Philabundance, says there will be weekly drop off times from now through September:

“We have 10 sites across the Delaware Valley where home gardeners can and donate their surplus produce from their gardens. It’ll be donated to a local food pantry in their area and given to people in their community.”

Miriam Anderson brought a box full of cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower and other fresh veggies.

“I love doing it,” she tells KYW Newsradio. “I love gardening, and I love sharing.”

All sites accept donations Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
