An anonymous Franklin County farmer, has donated thousands of pounds of produce to the Idaho Food Bank though the Preston Community Food Pantry.
Pepperidge Farms has also donated hundreds of pounds of cookies and other Campbell’s Soup goods to help feed the area’s hungry.
The local organizations will also take private garden produce. If your garden is overflowing with tomatoes, corn, zucchini or other area garden favorites and you are at a loss as to what to do with them, contact the local South East Idaho Community Action Agency and Preston Community Food Pantry.
Local and regional agencies can put fresh garden produce to good use and they welcome the donations, large or small.
Kandi Avery, Franklin County Coordinator for Preston’s SEICAA office, is one of the eight county coordinators that readily accept garden produce no matter the size of the donation. Avery serves about 50 families in Franklin County and the produce she receives is welcomed by those with whom she works.
