All fresh fruits and vegetables are welcome: squash, pumpkins, potatoes, onions, carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, sweet potatoes, apples, pears, etc. These foods of the harvest will be distributed to our Food Pantry recipients on Saturday, October 11. Thank you for helping us share the harvest and bless those in need!
