Help Our People Eat (HOPE) is reaching out to community gardens and gardeners this summer for donations of fresh produce through a new initiative call Help Harvest Hope. Locally grown fruits and vegetables can be dropped off at HOPE’s central location or at one of the partnering collection sites around town. More sites are expected to be added soon.

YMCA at Robinhood 3474 Robinhood Rd

Meltdown Restaurant 505 Deacon Blvd.
