Bradley Sell of Waynesboro, Pa., the new executive director of Food Resources Inc. in Washington County, says he'd like to establish a "fresh produce day" this summer.
"If we get calls from people who want to donate fresh fruits and vegetables, we'll try to set up a day for drop off and pick up," Sell said.
While Food Resources deals mostly in nonperishables, fresh items can be handled, although it must be quickly, Sell said.
Food Resources, which provides food to 28 food pantries, is located at 930 Eldridge Drive.
In the 1995-96 fiscal year, 347,551 pounds of food was distributed to 49,000 people.
The agency is a member of United Way, the Maryland Food Bank system and Second Harvest National Food Bank network.
"We get United Way funds and money from Washington County Commissioners, block grants, private donations and the Washington County Gaming Commission," Sell said.
