Another option if you are growing more food than you need is to visit www.AmpleHarvest.org - a site that helps diminish hunger by enabling gardeners to share their garden produce/herbs with neighborhood food pantries.
The site is free both for the food pantries and the gardeners using it.
Backed by Google.com and the USDA, more than 2,500 food pantries nationwide are already on it and more are signing up daily.
It includes preferred delivery times, driving instructions to the pantry as well as (in many cases) information about store bought items also needed by the pantry (for after the growing season). A free Ample Harvest iPhone app is also available. See www.AmpleHarvest.org/CNN.php for recent CNN coverage.
If your community has a food pantry, make sure they are registered at www.AmpleHarvest.org .
