Feeding Napa: Fresh Food Drive

Every market day, volunteers collect donations of fresh fruits and vegetables from the Napa Farmers Market and distribute them to the Napa Food Bank (Saturdays) and The Table (Tuesdays).

Produce donations from the Napa Farmers Market has greatly improved the nutrition of food and meals provided by local organizations to our neighbors in need.  These donations also increase the diversity of produce available for very low income people and families.

Produce donations are always in high demand and do not go to waste.

When you’re at the market, buy a little extra and drop it off at the Education Station and it will help our community eat healthier!

In summer and early fall, popular produce items are:

  • Peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Berries

The Napa Food Bank usually has a lot of:

  • Tomatoes
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Potatoes
