Produce For Pantries Picks Up at the Montrose Farmers Market

MONTROSE — Attention all gardeners, farmers and producers of all kinds of vegetables. Have extra produce? Consider donating your whole, unprocessed produce to Sharing Ministries Food Bank in downtown Montrose.

There is growing demand from the Montrose food bank to supply nourishing food to the most vulnerable residents in communities across the region.

In 2013, Sharing Ministries Food Bank served 85,000 individuals in Montrose, Delta, Mesa, and Ouray and San Miguel counties, by distributing over 810,000 pounds of food.

According to Executive Director Oneda Doyal in a news release, “the food bank has been without any produce or meat to distribute in the past three weeks. We hope that our gardeners and producers can partner with us to bring this much needed food to our community.”

Beginning this month, the Montrose Farmers Market has come on board to collect surplus produce from the public to benefit Sharing Ministries Food Bank. The Valley Food Partnership and LiveWell Montrose, Olathe will coordinate a booth during the Saturday Farmers Market where they will collect produce donations of all sizes to be taken directly to the food bank at the end of the market.

Donations will be weighed and recorded and donors will receive a tax receipt from Sharing Ministries Food Bank. Thanks to the new Colorado Charitable Crop Donation Act, Colorado farmers can claim a 25 percent tax credit for the wholesale value of all fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat products donated to food banks.

Collections will take place weekly during the Montrose Farmers Market: Saturdays 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. located at S. 1st St. and Uncompahgre, across from Centennial Plaza. Donations are also collected weekdays at the Sharing Ministries food Bank, 121 N. Rio Grande Ave. from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
