You can help feed people in need by sharing your garden's yield.

When you plan your garden, consider planting a little extra to donate to the Channel One Supplemental Food Shelf. You don’t need to have a big garden to donate; any amount is helpful and needed. So if you find yourself with extra produce throughout the year, please consider donating. You can make an impact by donating your surplus produce to Channel One Regional Food Bank. Your fresh and healthy donations will help feed local families and individuals struggling to make ends meet.

Channel One is glad to accept donations of produce that travel well and are good keepers including:

  • Channel One GradenCarrots
  • Radishes
  • Green Beans
  • Summer Squash (please keep maximum length for zucchini under 8 inches)
  • Winter Squash
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Peppers
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Beets

Due to its perishability, Channel One prefers not to receive donations of lettuce. For specific guidelines of donating produce, please download our produce resource sheet.
