Produce Sharing

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.
