Is your garden overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables? This time of year, many gardeners find themselves harvesting more than they can eat. If that's the case, consider participating in a new kind of food drive that collects fresh produce for the Loaves and Fishes food pantry.

If you would like to donate produce from your garden, call 978-772-CARE (2273) and leave your address, whether you prefer pick up on Wednesday or Friday mornings, and where outside your house you will leave the donation -- curb, mailbox or porch, for example.

A volunteer will pick up donations on Wednesdays and Fridays between 8 a.m. and noon. The produce should be free of insecticides and washed. The Fresh Veggie Food Drive is being sponsored by Central Ave. Compassionate Care Inc., to benefit Loaves & Fishes.
