Food Bank Donation Information

Master Gardeners and MG Interns can donate their fresh garden produce to local food pantries to help support the Hunger Free ND initiative. To find a pantry in your area, look here and click on the link at the top of the page.

Master Gardeners will earn 1 volunteer hour for every 5 pounds of produce they donate to a food pantry. In addition, you can count the amount of time that it takes to drive to and from the food pantry. Please weigh your produce at the participating food pantry and keep track of the weight on your reporting forms.

For those of you tending a dedicated community garden for such a project, you have the choice of either counting all your hours in taking care of the garden plus transporting the produce to the food pantry OR you can use the 5 lbs per hour rule.
