Food Bank seeking excess produce

PROVO — Community Action Services and Food Bank, 815 S. Freedom Blvd., is accepting donated fruits and vegetables as part of the 2007 Share the Harvest. The mission of Share the Harvest is to bring excess garden produce from the back yard of one neighbor to the table of another.

Every weekday 80 to 100 families receive food from Community Action Food Bank, but less than 1 percent of that is fresh produce, according to food bank director Jim Thomas.

Families who have edible fresh produce can make donations between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays at the Food Bank. Other nonperishable items will also be accepted. Call 373-8200 for information.
