Procedures for Accepting Donations of Garden Produce


The Gibson Area Food Pantry welcomes donations of fresh-from-the-garden produce as it provides nutritional food choices that pantry customers enjoy. If you are willing to donate produce, please follow the procedures so that we can best use your fresh produce:

  • Do not wash the produce, as the water draws bacteria.

  • Keep produce types separate.

  • Do not cut or process the produce.

  • Limit produce to items picked within 5 days of a pantry distribution.

  • Produce can be brought to the pantry on Friday night of a distribution weekend between 6:00 and 7:00 pm or on Saturday starting at 7:30 am.

  • For other times, call (217) 784-5014 and leave a message. Your call will be returned and a time can be set up delivery at the pantry.
