SHARING YOUR GARDEN BOUNTY WITH NEIGHBORS IN NEED. Fresh produce is healthier than canned foods, it tastes a lot better, has eye appeal too. Children given the opportunity to enjoy fresh veggies are more likely to eat a healthier diet as they grow older. Providing fresh fruits and vegetables to local food pantries offers a number of benefits to the recipient. CASA of Jackson County is a member of AmpleHarvest.org, and accepts your excess harvest from your garden to share with those in need. You can drop your produce at the CASA Food Pantry during the hours of 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday.
