Sunburst Oranges – Think Donating Your Excess To Food Banks

Do you grow fruits and vegetables on your home property? Many of us do. Do you find your trees and plants produce more than you can use yourself.

At the peak of your harvest season do you find that your surplus goes to waste? Or, are your neighbors and coworkers calling you the crazy fruit lady?

I know many neighbors appreciate getting fresh fruits and vegetables from local gardens. Fresh is so much better than what you find at the typical grocery store.

Excess fruits and produce from your trees and garden can be donated to a local food bank.

More than 40 million gardeners across America grow fruit, vegetables, herbs and nuts in backyard, terrace, kitchen and community gardens. Some even have orchards or small farms. Many end up growing more than they can use, preserve or give to co-workers and friends.

At the same time, tens of millions of Americans struggling to feed their families can't get fresh produce from the local food pantry.

It doesn't have to be this way.

If you are growing more food than you can use, can help you find a local food bank that would be eager to accept your abundance.

An estimated 100 billion pounds of food (including oranges), enough to totally eliminate hunger, is thrown away annually in the United States.

Join the millions of gardeners across the country using to share their bounty with their neighbors in need.

One out of six Americans needs food assistance, but can't get fresh produce from the local food pantry, while, millions of American homeowners grow more food in their backyard gardens than they can possibly use.

The campaign is a national effort utilizing the Internet that enables 40+ million Americans who grow fruits and vegetables in home gardens to easily donate their excess harvest to registered local food pantries spread across all 50 states.

Surplus oranges from your garden will be greatly appreciated by your local food bank.
