Help Someone in Need- Share your Extra Produce

Do you have extra produce this season? Maybe you went a little overboard with the zucchini. Perhaps you started off the season with visions of your kids eating organic homegrown vegetables at every meal, but now you're finding more in the compost pile than in their mouths. Or maybe your thumb is just greener than you thought. Whatever the reason for your extra bounty, please consider sharing it with a local food shelf. Here are a few neighborhood locations that will welcome your fresh food donations!
