Share the Harvest program underway in Philadelphia

    Gardners in Philadelphia have begun to step up to help those in need as this year’s Philabundance has begun in Philadelphia.

    The annual event began Saturday and aims to help those in need with gardeners from the region offering their excess veggies.

    According to the organization, Philabundance is the region’s largest hunger relief organization.

    The event encourages home gardeners to grow extra veggies and collect any surplus veggies from their harvest for donations.

    Now through September 24th, the organization will accept produce donations on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 11 locations throughout the Delaware Valley.
