Second Harvest of the Big Bend grows fresh produce to provide to our partner agencies. As a supplement to the produce program, and with the generous cooperation of Edwin Lott, Lott’s Community Garden, our garden program, grows a rotation of produce to add nutritious items that may not be readily available from our donor network.

Lott’s Community Garden is a growing and educational facility located just 15 minutes from Tallahassee at 39 Lott Road, Monticello FL, 32344. Thanks to our close relationship with Lott’s, produce harvested by our volunteers is brought back to the warehouse and offered to our community partners at the peak of its freshness.

Lott’s Community Garden has provided 104,495 pounds of fresh produce to the food bank since 2012!

Lott’s is a great option for volunteers who prefer weekend service, as most of our volunteer events are on Saturday.
