Local growers are encouraged to grow an extra row of their favorite vegetables, for donation to the Goffstown Network food pantry. In addition, gardeners are reminded that any excess produce they may have is welcome. Our first year was very successful, with community members bringing in over 1000 pounds of freshly grown, local produce. We continue to build on what we have learned. We are getting assistance from a number of local individuals, businesses, and organizations. We are truly excited about this program because it helps us bring fresh, healthy produce to our clients (something that we strive for, but can’t always do). It also gives local gardeners the chance to contribute to the pantry, while doing something that they enjoy. All types of vegetables are welcome!
Please try to drop donations at the pantry during our open hours. We are located at 7 North Mast Street, across from Sully’s in the village. We are open Wednesdays from 6:00 – 7:30 pm, and Saturdays from 10:00 – 11:30 am.
