The produce is free on a first-come, first-served basis.
The farm stand will accept fresh produce donations 1 to 3 p.m. during the same dates.
Please donate food that would be acceptable at your own table. No large squash will be accepted.

Manna Soup Kitchen’s garden to offer more free food

Volunteers Daria Robinson, Zak Bukovich, Campbell Brown and Kate Petty, from left to right, tie tomato plants inside a new hoop structure at the Manna Soup Kitchen garden. The Garden Project of Southwest Colorado manages the garden, and it provides food for the soup kitchen. Some of the food will also supply a new farm stand, which will be open Wednesdays.
Volunteers from The Garden Project of Southwest Colorado work in the garden Wednesday at the Manna Soup Kitchen. The garden is expected to produce up to 1,000 pounds of food this season.
Patt Frazer plants kale in the garden at the Manna Soup Kitchen on Wednesday. The garden focuses on greens because they are rich in nutrients.
