Fresh Food Drive

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

Donate fresh food when you are shopping at your local Farmers Market; HDFFA has representatives at all of the markets listed below; your food will be delivered to local food pantries, kitchens and the NeighborImpact Food Bank.

Ways to Donate:

  • Purchase extra pounds
  • Gardeners can deliver excess produce
  • 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
