Demonstration garden becomes fresh produce grocer to Contra Costa free meals program

A nonprofit center that feeds people in need contacted UCCE Master Gardeners in Contra Costa County. The center had been struggling to find a source for affordable, fresh produce to include in their meals. The UC Master Gardeners keep a demonstration garden in Walnut Creek where they grow a number of edible plants, and they decided to donate all of their harvested produce to the center. Over the past growing season, the Master Gardeners donated more than 4,000 pounds of fresh produce to the center, delivering every bit of it on the same day it was picked.
