With the last of the squash delivered to Second Harvest Heartland, it’s time to “do the numbers”. Here, for your (and my) edification are some stats on the Food Shelf project.

About 10,000 pounds of fresh, organically grown food

991 pounds of sweet corn and 5539 pounds of squash weighed on delivery to the big food banks plus 9 pickup truck loads delivered to the smaller food banks with no specific documentation.

63 Volunteers
