Food Donation Possibilities for Most Excellent Home Gardeners

Are your neighbors growing tired of finding your zucchini on their doorstep? Are they retaliating by leaving their summer squash in your mailbox? We have a solution for you!

Calling all skilled home gardeners that have an overabundance of vegetables flowing out of their garden right now. If your stomach is unable to eat one more cucumber, cabbage or cherry tomato right now, and your neighbors are locking there doors when they see you walk by, think about donating all those fresh healthy vegetables to your local food panty.

They also accept eggs from overzealous chickens that lay too many for you to eat.

Here’s a list of a few pantries that accept fresh perishables in the seacoast area:

Cornucopia Food Pantry, Durham, NH

Footprints Food Pantry, Kittery, ME

Seacoast Family Food Pantry, Portsmouth, NH

Exeter Congregational Church Food Pantry, Exeter, NH


If one of these food pantries are too far for you, please check a more complete list on the Seacoast Eat Local pantry list.
