Fresh Food Drive

This isn’t your old-fashioned canned food drive!

Donate $5 when you are shopping at your local Farmers Market; Your money goes to purchase fresh food from farmers; HDFFA delivers all fresh food donations the NeighborImpact Food Bank.

So many ways to make an impact:

  • Community members donate $5 at HDFFA’s booth at Downtown Bend and Northwest Crossing Farmers Markets
  • Farmers market patrons purchase extra pounds of produce and donate at all regional farmers markets listed below
  • Gardeners deliver excess produce the HDFFA farmers market booths
  • Farmers provide end of day excess products

Other Donation Locations

If you miss the donation times at the farmers market, there is still a way to donate your excess fruits and vegetables. Many local pantries and kitchens gladly accept fresh food donations directly from community members. You can use our Fresh Food Donation Map below  to learn when and where to donate!

“I have donated freshly harvested carrots, zucchini and tomatoes from my garden. Sharing your gardens bounty is one of the easiest and helpful donations you can do for our community.” –Jules Greene
