Every October Backyard Bounty shifts into high gear and this year we are going to kick things off by celebrating all the fresh, local food grown in Santa Barbara County. All week we will be out in the community sharing information about what grows in Santa Barbara. During the late fall and winter the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County has less access to fresh produce to stock our warehouses. Luckily Santa Barbara County’s fruit season peaks when we need it most. Join us in celebrating this beautiful time of year and help make sure that everybody in our community has access to fresh local produce. Throughout Backyard Bounty Week we will be out in the community sharing information about fighting hunger through gleaning.
