Volunteer & Donate

The New Food Bank Garden in Waterloo.
To volunteer at a community garden near you, sign up through the Volunteer Center of Cedar Valley (go to "Volunteers" and "Click Here to Volunteer"). Search the Volunteer Solutions form for keywords "community garden volunteers," and peruse the listings to find an community garden opportunity that best fits you or your group.
Donate your locally grown produce to the Northeast Iowa Food Bank! Contact Sheri Huber-Otting (shuber-otting@feedingamerica.org; 319-235-0507 x126) for details.
Check out Cultivate Iowa, a statewide initiative encouraging Iowans to donate fresh garden produce to local food pantries. Fresh produce - not a common food pantry item - is needed and can be donated safely! Visit the website for helpful information.
