Building Community

Community Gardens are an important shared resource in their communities. Community gardeners donate their produce for a variety of reasons: to prevent food waste, to intentionally support local food access work, and/or to build their garden’s sense of community and impact.

Whether garden members donate individually, or together as a garden, sharing the produce grown is a meaningful way to give back. Fresh Food Connect simplifies the process by connecting you directly with a local hunger relief organization.
