Pick and Evaluate your Produce

Check that your produce meets our donation guidelines for our food pantry partners. Harvest your produce safely using these best practices.

Produce must be: 

  • Fresh - Harvest produce immediately before donating. We cannot accept produce with signs of mold, fungus, or decay. 
  • Whole - We cannot accept cut fruit or vegetables. 
  • Raw - We cannot accept cooked food. 
  • Clean - We cannot accept produce with signs of insects. 
  • Packaged in a clean bag or box - Place your produce in a clean plastic or paper grocery bag, or place them in a cardboard box. We cannot accept produce in garbage bags. We suggest that you label the bag or box with the date, your name, and product details (e.g., twenty (20) tomatoes, two (2) zucchini, harvested 5/7/21, grower/group/institution name). 
  • Dry Goods  - You may donate non-perishable dry goods in addition to produce. 

Find a Food Pantry to Donate

PHS created a map of local food pantries in the Philadelphia region that can distribute your homegrown produce to help feed our communities. If you live outside of this region, visit AmpleHarvest.org to see their national food pantry map. Check back regularly to see additional food donation sites as they join Harvest. Interested in adding your pantry to our map? Fill out this form.

Schedule a donation pickup with Food Connect! A safe and convenient option to get your harvest to a participating donation site.
