Farmers deliver fresh produce to local food banks

Article from nj.com

Working with some 55 New Jersey farms and a network of local charities, Farmers Against Hunger helps feed an estimated 7,000 people every week. The group, an affiliate of the New Jersey Agricultural Society formed in 1996, collects fresh produce donated by farmers and other produce outlets and delivers the food to distribution centers in central and southern New Jersey. Food banks and other nonprofit groups count on the deliveries of fresh, locally grown produce to boost stores of largely processed and packaged food. This week, at the height of blueberry season, farmers in the New Jersey Pinelands donated 3,500 pints of fresh blueberries, which were distributed at food banks in Camden, Browns Mills, Mount Holly and Trenton.
