The Village Garden Project connects local growers and gardeners to Heaven's Windows so produce can be distributed through a variety of meal programs. Meals are distributed through Heaven's Windows sponsored sites such as low-income apartment complexes, community/teen centers, libraries, and more. Sign up today to donate your extra garden produce to families in need!
Fresh Food Connect
Each year, roughly 1 in 10 people in the US experience food insecurity, yet 40% of food is wasted. At the same time, 1 in 3 US households grow food at home or in community gardens.
Fresh Food Connect's free mobile app connects home gardeners to local hunger relief organizations, and helps coordinate homegrown produce donations. If you grow extra produce in your at-home garden, you can use this app to find the nearest participating drop-off site, log your extra produce, and bring it to one of our designated locations.
Your surplus produce won't go to waste, and folks living in neighborhoods where healthy food can be hard to come by will get to enjoy fresh, locally grown food.
How Do I Donate Produce?
Anyone is eligible to donate produce. Our donation hours are Tuesday-Friday, 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM.
Download the Fresh Food Connect App and enter your ZIP code.
Once you have produce to share, go to "Share my Harvest" and select "Drop-off to Non-profit". Then, log your donation and indicate your drop-off time.
Afterwards, follow the instructions provided by the app on how to drop off produce!
