Program providing free produce quadruples output

MIDDLEBURY, Ind. – An Elkhart County program that grows produce to help supply northern Indiana food banks has quadrupled the amount of food it can supply this year.

Seed to Feed co-coordinator Katie Jantzen told the Goshen News (http://bit.ly/17bUGdU ) that last year’s program harvested about 26,000 pounds of food. This year’s program has already brought in nearly 32,000 pounds, and the organization expects to add at least 60,000 pounds of potatoes to that total.

Jantzen said last year’s drought played a role in the smaller yield but said this year’s harvest should be “incredible.”

Seed to Feed is in its second year and is a program of Church Community Services.
