Local report

ACCESS is asking the public to donate fresh fruit and vegetables on Saturday in an event called Harvest for the Hungry. Area residents are encouraged to harvest produce out of their gardens and donate it at one of the three following locations, between 9 a.m. and noon:

  • ACCESS, 3630 Aviation Way, Medford.
  • City of Talent offices, 110 E. Main, Talent.
  • Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 745 N. 10th St., Central Point.

ACCESS will have staff members and refrigerated vehicles at each of the locations to receive any size of donation.

“This effort will help us to fill the need for healthy foods into the network of 52 pantries and programs ACCESS distributes to throughout Jackson County,” Philip Yates, ACCESS Nutrition Programs director, said in a release. "The need for this nutritious supply of food is very important to the work we do for those struggling in our community."
