Feed Fayetteville, Seeds That Feed seek local produce donations

Local non-profit organization Feed Fayetteville has partnered with Seeds That Feed to collect donations of fresh, local produce for distribution to area food pantries.

The organization is asking individuals to purchase extra produce from the farmers’ market or grocery store, or to donate extra produce from their gardens to the program to help battle food insecurity in Fayetteville.

So far this year, volunteers have collected over 2,000 pounds of fresh locally grown produce for area pantries and community meals through the program.

Those interested in donating to the program can do so from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at the Feed Fayetteville booth, located at the Fayetteville Farmers market on the square. Donations may also be made on Tuesdays from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at LifeSource International, located at 602 School Avenue. All donations will be weighed and then distributed to local community meals and food pantires.

Seeds that Feed will also arrange for scheduled pick-ups from individuals who are unable to drop-off their donations during these times.
