Donating excess produce from your vegetable garden to a local food pantry can help give those without access to fresh and healthy foods an opportunity to incorporate them into their diets.  Learn more about the type of vegetables food pantries need most, and the mechanics of donation in the Iowa State University Extension & Outreach Yard and Garden news release from March 20, 2018.
