So you have extra produce from your garden…
The Thurston County Food Project is a program built around collecting non-perishable food donations once every two months. The Food Project does not currently accept fresh produce donations.
But wait! The Food Bank LOVES fresh produce! There are several ways to donate produce to the Food Bank:
- Grow extra crops in your home garden – the Food Bank’s Grower’s Guide has details on what they need most.
- Designate your monetary donation towards their produce program.
- Purchase bulk produce and donate it to their downtown location in the winter and spring when produce donations are low.
- Volunteer for their gleaning program.
- Volunteer for the Olympia Kiwanis Club Food Bank Gardens, which grows over 25,000 pounds of produce for the Food Bank each year.
Find more information on the above ways to help the Food Bank rack up more produce on their website.
