Neighborhood Food Hubs

Don’t Let Your Veggies Grow Up to be Compost!

Have extra produce from your garden or CSA share? Donate it!

Drum roll, please…The results are in from the 2017 season of FDN’s Neighborhood Food Hubs: 5,900 pounds of produce was donated through 17 hubs.

Area gardeners have donated more than 21,220 pounds of lovingly-grown produce since Neighborhood Food Hubs began in 2013.
