With fall harvests in full swing, the valley is full of fresh food.
Whether you grew an extra row of produce to donate to the hungry, or you just have too much to handle — drop it off at your local food pantry!
Utah pantries request fruits and veggies that are easy to transport and in good condition.
Last May, students at Nibley Park School started a garden with help from involved parents and staff. Their goal is to donate all of the produce to a local food pantry. As kids learn to grow and harvest food, they will also learn what it means to give back to the community.
Hildegarde’s Pantry is located at 231 E 100 S Salt Lake City, UT 84111. Their central location and Tuesday through Friday hours mean that fresh produce makes it out into the community quickly. Hildegarde’s serves a diverse population so all donations are welcome, and staff don’t let your produce go to waste. Anything left from the day is either stored for the next or taken to a partner pantry nearby.
