Too Many Veggies?

Did you plant too much this year? Do you have more vegetables than you, your neighbors, and your friends can eat? Would you like to share with the less fortunate?

If so, please check out this opportunity: is a nation-wide nonprofit campaign—backed by the USDA, the White House, and Google—that is connecting backyard and community gardeners who have a bountiful harvest with local food pantries that are ready and able to accept donations of fresh food. provides the only free, searchable, online database of food pantries across the country so that gardeners can find a convenient location to donate.  So, next time a gardener has a bigger harvest than they can handle, instead of throwing the fruits of their labor in the compost pile, they can feed hungry families in their community.  Check out our Master Gardener page at or home page at
