More than 1M pounds of food donated since 2010

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring announced at the recent North Dakota Farmers Market and Growers Association Local Foods Conference that the volunteers in the Hunger Free ND Garden Project have donated more than one million pounds of fresh produce to food pantries, soup kitchens, and other charitable community programs since the program started in 2010. 

The Hunger Free ND Garden Project was started through the local foods initiative of the North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) in partnership with the Great Plains Food Bank. The statewide project encourages home gardeners and commercial growers to plant extra produce each year for donation to charitable organizations across the state.
