I agree that shelf life is a consideration, esp. if the donations are
going to a Food Bank. That said, when we surveyed the partnering
organizations in our local food bank network, tomatoes still made #2 on
the list. See below for the results (in order of preference). Note
that some of the org's are soup kitchens as well as food distribution
centers. I would definitely recommend a survey of the folks you plan to
donate to, if at all possible.
sweet corn, tomatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, cabbage, carrots,
melons, greens, onions, cucumbers, dry beans, lettuce, broccoli, peas,
peppers, cauliflower, and garlic.

I live in Michigan and have participated in a community garden for the
needy for the last two year. We have been having problems giving our
vegetables away. Could I please hear from other gardeners around the
country and get some tips on what are the most popular vegetables that
they grow to give away to various programs? Thank you so much in advance
for your help.
