JCFBA partners with Food Bank Growers

Each year thousands of pounds of produce are generated for Jefferson County Food Banks and area schools. The Food Bank Growers Board intersects with the Food Banks. The two organizations work together, but are not the same non-profit.

Each garden determines which Food Bank they are going to give to and set up a relationship for the year establishing which day they will harvest/deliver and who are the primary contacts. Each week the pounds of produce that is collected and distributed is weighed and tallied
