Swimming in squash? Buried in broccoli? Thinking you might have planted a few too many tomatoes?
Instead of leaving them on your neighbors porches and doing a "ring and run" or, worse yet, leaving on the vine to rot, your extra garden produce can go to help feed Oregonians who don't have enough to eat.
The Oregon Food Bank's Plant a Row for the Hungry program has drop-off sites around the metro area, including sites in Multnomah, Clark, Washington and Clackamas counties. They're particularly interested in produce that transports well, like:
- Green beans
- Winter squash
- Hot peppers
- Collard greens
Details: Oregon Food Bank's Plant a Row for the Hungry produce donation has drop-off sites around the metro area. Check the website for a location near you or call 503-282-0555 for information.
