BETHEL — Do you have excess veggies from that garden you’re starting to harvest?

The Bethel Rotary Club has started a distribution program for any gardener who wishes to give excess produce to those without gardens, Steve Wight, club member, said Wednesday.

The Bethel Food Pantry distributes food, including local produce, once a month, he said.

“With gardens overproducing right now, when Rotarian Walt Hatch asked how a friend could make extra garden largess available to those in need at other times, Rotarian Bud Kulic suggested setting up an exchange table at his house for drop-off and pickup,” Wight said.

A table has been set up under a tent at the Kulic residence at 60 Elm St. in Bethel. Donations can be dropped off anytime, and folks in need are welcome to come by anytime, as well, Wight said.

“This exchange is designed to last only through the gardening season and to benefit both gardeners who hate to see extra veggies go to waste, and folks who can use them,” he said.

For more information, contact Wight at 890-8356.
