Gardeners from the Evanston community donated more than 915 pounds of vegetables and herbs to local food pantries in 2018 through Edible Evanston's Produce Sharing program during the 19-week season, mid-June through early October. About 45 pounds of that total were herbs. Thanks to the many gardeners who donated their excess produce!
Our volunteers help individual growers get their excess produce to those in need in our community, reducing waste and providing fresh produce to those in need. Since 2012 Edible Evanston has delivered thousands of pounds of fresh, local vegetables and herbs to Evanston food pantries. We pick up weekly June–October at four community gardens throughout Evanston.
