Donate to the Frederick Food Bank

My friend Ilene at House in the Woods Farm has a post up on how to donate fresh vegetables to the Frederick Food Bank. This is the time of the summer when many of us have the crazy in our eyes because we are overwhelmed with produce, but there are many in our community that are hungry right now. Ilene goes a step further and grows a row of chard specifically for the Food Bank. It's good to be abundant and to have plenty to share.

What a great idea! I think I will start setting aside part of our CSA share for that!

Hey! I see you are local so I added you to the blogroll!

I just wanted to say that word has definitely gotten around about this. When we dropped off our bag last week, both bins were full and I saw lots of fresh veggies, including melons and zucchini!

Glad to hear that! I am waiting for my tomato bumper crop to share.

Hey I am so psyched to hear this! Maybe it would be worth doing an interview with the food bank to talk about how people can provide fresh local produce to them.
