It may seem a bit early to think about harvesting your garden’s bounty. But if you’d like to share some of that harvest with people in need, consider participating in the Philabundance Share the Harvest program. Simply plant an extra row or two of whatever you are growing. Then donate your produce any Saturday between July 7th and September 22nd, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at one of the Bucks County pickup locations: Carousel Gardens, 591 Durham Road, Newtown, PA, or Seasons Garden Center, 1069 River Road, Washington Crossing, PA. Your donations will be distributed to area food pantries.
Philabundance is the Delaware Valley’s largest organization dedicated to relieving chronic hunger and malnutrition, which affect more than 900,000 people throughout the region. The difficult economy has increased food insecurity substantially, with Philabundance noting a 26% year-over-year increase in need. To learn more, visit www.philabundance.org.
