Monroe Food Assistance Programs

Gardeners with excess fruit and vegetables can donate to a local food pantry or soup kitchen where they can really use the help. We bring our excess produce in to our local food pantry the day before distribution. This gives pantry volunteers time to divide it into the assistance bags, but they do not have to find a place to store it. What can you do?

Food Pantries or other emergency food assistance programs may serve one town or an entire county. We have listed them by their primary region. Please contact the organization directly to find out when and where they accept donations.
