Permalink Video Outlines Benefits of Donating Farm Produce to Food Banks

A new four-minute video produced by Whole Crop Harvest explains how and why produce growers should donate excess product to the food bank. The video explains how an extensive North Carolina food bank network is able to coordinate pickup of donated produce, provide reusable bins for farmers to use, and supply volunteer labor to sort, grade, and repackage bulk produce for family use. The video discusses the tax benefits of food donation and the positive community impact that such donations have. The food bank is willing to work with large, mid-size, and small growers. The video is available online at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems website.
