A group around the township of North Hills, Pennsylvania, is impacting their community in a big and special way by collecting excess fruits and vegetables from local gardeners and delivering that food to those in need.
The North Hills Community Outreach operates three food pantries, which serve nearly 1,200 families a year. And, this is an exciting time of year as the harvest leads to an increase in the amount of fresh produce the food pantries can offer.
But even those without gardens are invited to help, as anyone is welcome to donate canned goods, personal care items and cleaning supplies, which are always needed to keep the pantry stocked.
The garden round-up is certainly an exciting time for families who rely on the food pantry for help. And, it’s also an exciting time for the gardeners, who can see all their hard work going to help those who need it the most. (Tribune-Review)
