The concept is simple: there are lots of people growing fantastic food in their backyards, on their balconies, in the boulevards on their streets and in community gardens. There are moments in every garden when there are simply too many tomatoes to eat. Meanwhile, there are plenty of people in our community who don’t have access to this sort of wonderful fresh produce.
Easy Solution: Distribute extra produce from local gardens to local people who would like to eat it!
Once you’ve got your extra produce grown and harvested, you can drop it off at one of our designated drop-off locations:
