Produce For Pantries encourages home, school and community gardeners to plant, grow and share produce with food pantries and hunger-relief organizations in their neighborhoods.

Hunger is a serious issue for too many Coloradoans. Every day tens of thousands of our neighbors struggle to put food on the table. At the same time, many of us grow healthy, beautiful produce in our backyards, and in school and community gardens. How can we connect the two and get more of that nutritious food to those that need it—and make it easy? Think Produce for Pantries.

Once you have produce, how can you find about food pantries in your neighborhood? Again, easy! Just call the Hunger Free Hotline at 855-855-4626 and get the location and contact information for the closest pantry to you, no matter where you are in our fair state.
