The Produce for People program, part of Portland Parks & Recreation Community Gardens, announced they have donated more than 42,000 pounds of food to local hunger relief agencies.

The 42,000 pounds of food is organic and locally grown in 42 of the 50 Portland Community Garden sites.

The Produce for People program began in 1995.

"It is uplifting to see this grassroots effort thrive so well," says Portland Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz. "PFP is about people helping people, neighbors helping neighbors. I commend all the community gardeners across Portland, as well as our Community Gardens staff, for their continued efforts."
