If you have ever grown zucchini, you know that it can be pretty prolific.  There are usually summer days that you could eat it at every meal - and there would still be extras.  So what to do with all the excess?  Why not share it with neighbors, friends, family, or others in your community in need. 

 

Here is a fun way to start the sharing.  August 8 is National Sneak A Zucchini On Your Neighbor's Porch.  Have you ever celebrated?  Don't let another year go by without participating.  Although the day says "porch," but why not try desk or office?  Extra produce can also be donated locally to food banks, pantries, or like-organizations that distribute food to those in need.  

 

In addition to leaving the fruitful-fruit tomorrow for Sneak A Zucchini On Your Neighbor's Porch, some may choose to leave a recipe or two.

 

Celebrate and be sure to share the fun with a photo and post on the Ohio Local Foods Facebook Page at  https://www.facebook.com/OHLocalFoodWeek/
