At this time of giving thanks, we want to express our deep gratitude to all of you who give so generously to Farm to Pantry.

With your help we can do more, feed more people, share more excess nutritious produce and nourish our community. Please make a donation of any size to Farm to Pantry today and keep the healthy food going to our neighbors in need.



So we can continue our work not only today but into the future, we ask that you become a Farm to Pantry Perennial and pledge to support Farm to Pantry every year.


~Thank You~

To the dedicated volunteers who give their time and energy to harvest and distribute fruits and vegetables that would have been plowed under or composted.

To the thoughtful farmers and backyard gardeners who give their extra produce so it nourishes our neighbors instead of going to waste.

To the generous donors who give as Farm to Pantry Perennials, to ensure that we continue to reach our underserved community through healthy food and education.
