Edible Evanston manages a food sharing program where excess produce from Evanston’s community gardeners is collected and distributed to local food pantries. In 2022, over 3000 pounds of food were distributed to three food pantries serving hundreds of families in Evanston. By diverting potential food waste, we not only provide needed nutrition to people, but also help reduce CO2 from food waste and food transport systems.
