Local gardens glean 9,100 pounds of produce

July 27, 2016 in Get Involved Harvest Time Newsletter

Ozarks Food Harvest’s Full Circle Gardens Program has provided thousands of pounds of harvested produce from local gardens to families in need so far this season!

In its third year, The Food Bank’s garden at Ozarks Natural Foods has already produced nearly 600 pounds of food planted, maintained and gleaned by volunteers. And thanks to generous farms like Fassnight Creek Farm, Victory Garden and Urban Roots Farm, more than 8,500 pounds of excess produce was gleaned by volunteers before it went to waste.

More volunteers are needed to keep up with the demand in these gardens. Sign-up today at
