Community Food Drop Off Locations

If you have excess fruit and are physically able to harvest it, the following agencies have accepted and distribute fruit and produce donations to the hungry in their communities. Click on any red marker on this map to see details on each location displayed, which are also listed below the map. Please call the organization first for current information and hours.  (Please contact Village Harvest with updates or corrections.)

For most food pantries, it's better to drop off fresh fruit early in the week, Monday or Tuesday, so they can distribute your fruit the same week. Daily meal services may be better for end of week drop offs.
