Put Your Extra Fruits and Veggies to Good Use with Shasta Senior Nutrition Program

Shasta Senior Nutrition Program is requesting donations of any surplus herbs, fruits, and vegetables from local gardens. The Shasta Senior Nutrition Program utilizes fresh produce in the meals they prepare Monday through Friday at four different Shasta County dining locations, as well as for the Meals on Wheels Program.

These programs provide nutritious meals, transportation, and supportive services that promote and enhance the physical, social, and spiritual health of seniors in our local communities. 

Peggy Hazen, from Shasta Senior Nutritional Program, states that, “We are hoping to add some fresh flavors to our meals by soliciting donations of garlic, onions, and fresh herbs for daily use on meals.” Hazen further added that while spices are the main request for donations, surplus produce such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and other fruits and vegetables are also a need.

If you have extra fruits or vegetables and are unsure what to do with them, think about donating to this wonderful program to support your elderly neighbors within our community. 

Between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., you may drop off your garden donations at Shasta Senior Nutrition Program; located at 100 Mercy Oaks Drive, Redding. For more information, contact Janice Holbrook at 530.226.3066.
