From the Food Bank of Northern Nevada:
The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is consistently working to improve the nutrition of the food that they distribute to those who need it. During their last fiscal year, they distributed close to 4 million pounds of fresh produce.
For the second year, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada is asking groups or individuals who plant gardens to consider the hungry when making their plans. Supporters are asked to "Plant a Row" for the hungry or simply to donate their excess produce. The Food Bank has reached out to their partner agencies, to set times and locations for produce drop off. The agencies will then distribute the food directly to those who need it. The list of agencies will be updated throughout the season and posted at fbnn.org.
The following agencies are set to receive produce throughout the growing season.
