Two of every five people visiting food banks “never had to ask for help for food” before — a gauge of the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic said the chief operating officer of Feeding America.
Food insecurity ranges from a fear that food will run out to an inability to buy enough food to not eating for a day because of a lack of food. Foodbank volunteers are often grateful for opportunities to distribute fresh, high-quality vegetables.
These organizations often accept fresh vegetable donations, especially if you bring them on days when they are open to the public and they can hand out the product right away. Ample Harvest is a nonprofit organization that features an interactive map that enables gardeners across the United States to find local food banks that accept fresh vegetables.
The organization’s distribution sites are run independently, but freshly grown produce is strongly consistent with its mission. Volunteers are often eager and accommodating when offered access to fresh vegetable donations, even traveling to pick up excess food.
