Do you have extra veggies from your garden? A local young man has a great idea that you will want to know about.
Imagine that you go to the South Shore Community Action Council Food Pantry and – among the canned goods and packaged food – you see produce such as fresh lettuce, acorn squash and even watermelon? They were most likely grown and donated by Robbie Wittenhagen, a Boy Scout with Troup 47 in Plymouth.
Robbie’s making us aware that your produce will be appreciated by the patrons of the Plymouth Food Distribution Center (aka Food Pantry), especially during the summer months when traditionally their donations slow. Information on how to donate is below.
Donate to the Plymouth Food Warehouse at the South Shore Community Action Council, at 71 Obery St., Plymouth:
- Perishables such as fresh produce – as well as nonperishables may be left at the Warehouse Monday or Wednesday 9 to noon. Back of the building down the hill.
- Nonperishables may be left with the receptionist from 8:30 to 3:30 in the first floor lobby Monday thru Friday.
Robbie reminds us – If you can’t get to Plymouth please find a local Food Pantry to donate your produce to!
Robbie is planning on starting his Eagle project next April. My older son (now age 30) became an Eagle Scout at Troop 47. Those of you familiar with scouting in Plymouth may have thought Troup 47 was no more – so I’m glad to hear they’ve been resurrected.
Imagine deciding to plant seeds to help feed those in need? It’s amazing what a tiny seed can turn into…and what a difference each one of us can make.
