MPL Seeking Garden-Grown Fruits and Vegetables for The Idaho Foodbank

Fresh fruits and vegetables donated at the Marshall Public Library for The Idaho Foodbank

As you’re growing your garden this year, the Marshall Public Library staff are asking you to consider setting aside some space for The Idaho Foodbank. 


Over the course of the growing season, staff at the library will be accepting donations of garden-grown fruits and vegetables for the Foodbank. 2018 was the first year of the library’s push for fresh foods and the department collected over 600 pounds of fruits and vegetables.  


“Thank you to everyone who donated some of their extra garden bounty to The Idaho Foodbank last year,” said Amy Campbell, Public Services Supervisor. “As library staff were accepting donations in 2018, it was touching to see how many people committed to planting a portion of their garden specifically for The Idaho Foodbank.” 


Library staff will accept donations as soon as gardens begin to produce. They will stop collecting food at the end of September. 


Those with questions about the effort can contact Amy Campbell at 208-234-1263 ext. 105 or via email at acampbell@marshallpl.org. The Marshall Public Library is located at 113 S. Garfield Avenue.
