San Luis Obispo County, CA Non-Profits in Need of Fresh Produce

Are you a San Luis Obispo County gardener with an overabundance of fresh fruit or vegetables? These food banks and shelters are in desperate need of assistance. Please take some of your backyard bounty to these locations.

Bryan Brown at the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter says, “We could definitely use help as we have a very thin budget for our food. We will gladly accept food from gardeners if allowed an opportunity to visit the garden site. Meat has become very limited for us so this is an item we are interested in (assuming it goes through a local butcher).”

Heritage House Food Bank

Kitchen address:  Heritage Baptist Church, 1315 Sussex Avenue East, Tenino Wa, 89589 Contact Food Bank Coordinator Kathy Lester at kelester@scattercreek.com.

Our Food Bank is open to recipients every Saturday from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.   Therefore, we generally coordinate to receive our food bank items on Fridays in the afternoon. This way we can ensure that the items we receive remain as fresh as we can get for Saturday.

Pastor Scott Peace says the food bank would love to receive any fresh fruits and vegetables. But he adds that the bank has special needs for Thanksgiving and Christmas. “Financially for families, this is the hardest time of the year; we try to offset that by providing additional grocery needs.”
