As you’re working in the garden this month, please consider donating some of your fresh produce to the Food Bank’s Plant It Forward program. Plant It Forward is a joint effort between the Food Bank and Gardens on Spring Creek. Started in 2011, the program collects donated produce from backyard gardeners to help feed neighbors in need. In 2014, the program yielded 37,000 pounds of fresh produce! No donation is too small!
