Area food pantries need your bounty
Is your vegetable garden growing well? Do you have more produce than you can handle?
Consider sharing some of that bounty with a neighbor or a fellow community member in need.
Share the Bounty is gardeners and growers sharing produce with others who can't afford fresh produce. Donations are welcome at all food pantries and senior sites in Pierce County, as well as WIC (Women, Infant and Child) clinics.
Listed below are food pantry and senior site open hours. All three types of sites, during their open hours, serve a number of people so fresh produce can come in and go out the same day.
Educational produce handouts offering storage and preparation information and low-cost nutritious recipes are available at these sites.
Whether you have a lot or little to donate, it will make a difference to someone. Together, people can and do make a difference. For more information or questions call Sarah Johnson at 273-3531, ext. 662.
