Step One: Research What to Grow
Gardeners, farmers, farmers’ markets, gleaners, bakers or other food processors…
Wherever you decide to donate, be sure to call ahead to find out what kinds of food would be useful and the best times to donate. Delivering fresh produce, and cleaning and bagging it before delivery, will help ensure that it is used. Please, donate only high quality, fresh produce. Learn more about donating food in Bulletin #4303, A Donor’s Guide to Vegetable Harvest and Bulletin #4304, A Food Pantry Wish List.
Step Two: Find Out Where to Donate
Where to donate
- Food Assistance Programs (listed by Town)

- Penobscot County — Please, call in advance before dropping off produce (ask for Kate).
Step Three: Report your donation!
Please, let us know how much you’ve donated so your donation will be recorded and included in our totals.
Please contact your local Maine Harvest for Hunger Coordinator if you have questions about reporting.
