ATTN: Gardeners and Farmers
Dear Local Gardeners and Farmers —
As you see fruits and vegetables begin to ripen in your gardens and on your farms — Please remember that you are encouraged to bring your surplus fruits and vegetables to the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry to share with your community neighbors. Fresh, delicious and locally grown fruit and vegetables are a special treat for our clients who otherwise would not be able to afford quality produce at grocery store prices.
Thanks in advance!
