The Northeast Iowa Food Bank is asking local gardeners and farmers to plant and donate extra produce to help feed hungry families. Last year, the Northeast Iowa Food Bank received more than 39,000 pounds of fresh produce through this program and through other fresh food donations.

Nearly 2,200 families benefit from the donations.

Donations may be eligible for a tax credit.
