[JULY 1, 2004]  Home gardeners blessed with an abundant crop that they would like to share can take their excess bounty to community food banks. Locally, the Lincoln/Logan Food Pantry on Logan Street is open for fruit and produce drop-offs each Tuesday morning at 9 and Thursday afternoons at 2.

A little farther to the south, Green View Nursery, 3000 W. Jefferson St. in Springfield, initiated the Plant A Row For The Hungry program. The initiative encourages participants to plant a row for the hungry when planning a garden in the spring. The nursery also has informative brochures, row markers and drop-off information for anyone interested in the program.

The nursery is a drop-off site for anyone interested in donating produce to help feed the hungry in central Illinois. The produce donated there throughout the season will go to the Central Illinois Foodbank, a local food bank in Springfield. For more information about the Central Illinois Foodbank, call (217) 787-4700.
