Surplus vegetables wanted
Mary Mac's Place in Woy Woy is seeking donations of surplus vegetables from local farmers and gardeners.
"Donations of produce are going far and wide and feeding many people in Woy Woy," said project officer Ms Christine Burge.
"Mary Mac's Place will distribute your produce through its existing network, which feeds more than 12,000 people each year," she said.
"If your garden produces more vegetables than you can eat, don't let them go to waste.
"Instead of leaving your lemons rotting on the ground, your lettuce wilting in the sun or asking your neighbour to take the excess tomatoes from your garden, how about supporting the From Paddock to Mary Mac's Place program?" said Ms Burge.
"It's a tragedy that so much food goes straight to landfill.
"As a nation, Australians are wasting $5.2 billion worth of food each year including fresh fruit and vegetables from our local supermarket, farmers and households."
Mary Mac's is open 9am to 1pm, Monday to Friday and will accept delivery of any edible fresh fruits and vegetables.
