The South County Food Hub has recently added another collaborative partner called Fresh Food Connect that helps local gardeners share their bounty with organizations across the United States. Gardeners can sign up online, advise what kind of produce they will be donating and can track that on the online app located at www.freshfoodconnect.org. Starting Monday June 21, the warehouse at 679 Anita Street #B1, Chula Vista will be opened to receive food from residents of South County communities including Bonita, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, National City, San Ysidro, and South San Diego. Food can be dropped off Mondays between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. If residents need help, the Glean Team can be scheduled to assist. As with all donations residents will receive a tax-deductible receipt for the pounds of food that they grow and donate.

For more information on how you or your organization can help please see their website www.ilovetoglean.org, contact Karen Clay at 619-598-4912 or info@ilovetoglean.org .
