What are you doing with your extra garden produce?

As your gardens are beginning to produce a bounty of vegetables, we invite you to participate in the Hunger Free ND Garden Program this summer. This program encourages gardeners across the state to share their excess produce with those who are less fortunate and may not have the opportunity to grow their own food. To help you get started donating, we have a scale and log available in our office Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. so you can conveniently weigh your produce and then simply drop it off at the site of your choice.
