Carousel Gardens is collecting surplus veggies and fruits from our gardens for those with food insecurities. This year we will be working with Bucks County Food Runners again. All of our donations were delivered to Bucks County Housing Group’s Doylestown food pantry. For more information about them please go to http://buckscountyfoodrunners.org.
We will be collecting food on Fridays from 8:30 until 6 and Saturdays from 8:30 until noon now through September 14. They will be picking up the food at noon on Saturdays. We will take any donation of food – perishable and non-perishable.
To make it easier for storage and transportation I am asking that if at all possible to bring donations cleaned and in bags or boxes so that the produce is not damaged. If time does not allow for this please just drop it off and we will take care of it.
Please spread the word to any fellow gardeners that have excess produce. If anyone has any question, please call me at 215-598-0202 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year we collected over 1600 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables and non perishable food! Thank you for all of your donations. It does make a difference!
